📅 On this day in 1962, the @Los Angeles Lakers Elgin Baylor and Jerry West became the first teammates in NBA history to each score at least 40 points in the same playoff game.
The feat has been accomplished five times since, most recently by Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday (April 21, 2018). pic.twitter.com/xnsoFn3FFF2:01 PM

#Lakers‘ embracing the win-now approach may lead them to a foolish mistake with Anthony Davis.

“The only thing they’re getting is the 8th seed. If they somehow get that, they get the #Suns, who are beasts. Beasts. I respect LeBron and AD. I just don’t see how you’re beating them 4 out of 7.”

San Antonio takes care of business in Houston and moves to 31-44 on the season, just a half-game behind the Lakers.
If the Lakers lose in Dallas tomorrow night (both LeBron and AD are doubtful), the Spurs move into 10th place in the Western Conference. – 10:26 PM

– Anthony Davis completed his first full practice since his injury (Feb. 16), and responded well. He’s doubtful to play Tues. at DAL as he ramps up conditioning.
– LeBron is also doubtful due to the ankle he sprained at NOP, but will be evaluated prior to the game as usual. – 6:08 PM

More on this storyline

Ryan Ward: Frank Vogel on LeBron’s ankle: “He definitely has some swelling from the ankle sprain.” He’ll be listed as DOUBTFUL for tomorrow’s game vs. Mavs. -via Twitter @RyanWardLA / March 28, 2022

LeBron James said his left ankle felt “horrible” after turning it in the first half of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 116-108 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday, and his availability to play Tuesday in Dallas is in question as L.A. faces a crucial final stretch to try to lock in a spot in the play-in tournament. “I mean, I have no idea how I finished the game, to be honest, after watching that replay,” James said after finishing with 39 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists in 42 minutes against New Orleans. “It’s pretty nasty.” -via ESPN / March 28, 2022

James’ ankle was wrapped after the game, and he was walking with a noticeable limp. He was unsure whether it would cause him to miss any games. “I hope not,” James said. “S—. I hope not, because I hate missing games. That’s not in my nature.” -via ESPN / March 28, 2022
