Part of the problem has been his usage with the Cavs, or rather a lack thereof. This is not the case with Hill, who's rate of 17 percent ranks seventh among all current rotation members. The Cavaliers now have the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference, but that is only three games above the Heat who are in the 8th spot so if they want to have a good spot in the playoffs they need to pull off some wins quick. With the addition of Isaiah Thomas and Lonzo Ball healthy, the Lakers have been one of the most improved teams since the playoff break.

Last season with the Utah Jazz, Hill was one of the NBA's top pick-and-roll ball-handlers, ranking in the 91st percentile.

Thomas - who shot a few glares at good friend Floyd Mayweather Jr., seated near the Cavs' bench, after making a couple of baskets - had what might have been his best all-around game for the Lakers with 20 points, nine assists and five rebounds.

While Hill tries to find his role in the offense, going to him more early and often should increase his overall output and take playmaking pressure off James. "The Lakers used a 22-3 run at the end of the third quarter to run away with a 127-113 victory over the Cavaliers", Youngmisuk wrote in his post-match report.




The Rockets are cruising along with the best record in the National Basketball Association, while the Spurs are on the brink of the unthinkable, trying to avoid missing the play-offs for the first time since 1997.

Hawks forward Taurean Prince scored 38 points (seven of 13 from three-point range) and added seven assists and six boards in a 129-122 loss to the Bulls. The bruising forward scored 23 points in the second half and went 14 for 18 from the field overall before leaving to a huge late ovation.

Bobby Portis also had 21 points for Chicago. The Hawks, already playing without injured point guard Dennis Schroder, lost Kent Bazemore to a right knee sprain and Jaylen Morris to a left ankle injury in the second quarter. Rudy Gobert added 19 points and 16 rebounds, and Joe Ingles scored 20 for Utah, which has won 11 straight on the road.

James wowed the crowd with some flashy passing and scoring drives in the paint before finishing with 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in 31 minutes. The 76ers defeated the Nets 120-97.
