LeBron says Lakers chemistry is not like 'instant oatmeal'

Luke Walton Le Bron James Lakers

LeBron James made his Los Angeles Lakers debut on Thursday but couldn't manage to secure victory as they fell 128-119 in Portland. Less than 20 seconds later, James came through the lane to throw down another rim-rattling dunk.

James opened the game with 13 points in the first quarter on the back of 5/6 from the field but was ice-cold in the second (five points) and third quarters (zero), shooting 1/5 from the field and 0/2 from three-point range. "Hopefully, it doesn't happen again". But Lillard answered with a 3-pointer to spark an 18-6 run.

Lara Trump: 'Kavanaugh Effect' Boosting Republicans With Women Ahead of Midterms
Immigration is the "most important" 2018 midterm issue for Republican voters, according to a national survey released on Thursday. Men are more evenly split, with 30 percent more likely to back Republicans, while 25 percent are more likely to back Democrats.

But it was not enough to prevent the Lakers losing to Portland for the 16th successive meeting as Damian Lillard led the way for the hosts with 28 points.

Lakers coach Luke Walton tried a variety of lineups in the season opener, using James at one point with the four one-year Lakers signings of Rondo, Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee.

Mobile confirms iPhone XR pricing ahead of pre-orders
The iPhone XR should also be available on some e-commerce platforms as well, but details on that are still unknown at the moment. We know the prices for iPhone XS (Rs 99,900 onwards) and XS Max (Rs 1,09,900 onwards) - these are for the 64GB variants.

While the 2018 Lakers are still full of questions, there's little doubt that James is still the best player in basketball.

LeBron James said the team needed to work on its chemistry and it would take time to develop.

Trump praises Montana GOP congressman for body-slamming reporter
Trump was speaking at a rally in Missoula, Mont., where the president was campaigning for a Republican challenger to Sen. Donald Trump praised Congressman Gianforte and called him "an incredible Montana leader".

It's just one game, but if that trend continues, it's not a good one. "It's a good first test for us, to be in a building where they haven't lost [a home opener] in the 2000s". "He doesn't party. He doesn't do certain things before shows because he wants to be dialed [in], he wants to be focused for him to get his message across in that show and people who pay money to see him".
