LeBron James reveals he loves THIS Lakers decision after Blazers win

"I'm the last person to ask about scrutiny and things of that nature. So none of that stuff matters to me", he added. I'd have to go back and look at it, but usually it's two or three things.

James finished with 29 points for the Lakers who were up 111-98 with 3:42 to go before the Mavericks went on a 15-2 run to pull even with seven seconds left.

Matthews led Dallas with 21 points and Harrison Barnes scored 19. Despite going through more fourth-quarter difficulties in Portland, they were very encouraged to come away with a triumph in a place where they lost in the season opener.

"What we discuss in our meetings is between us, but. we have been saying since the beginning, we're going to be patient", Walton said. "It's tough to get a win in Portland [even] when they don't have a good team". "That's not always my philosophy but with this team I'd like to keep one of those guys out there as much as possible".

"It actually never even gets to me really, so it's not a big deal for us", James continued.

Lakers coach Luke Walton says it will take a lot of hard work to rebuild the squad.

Johnson had previously preached patience for the team's young roster to develop around star LeBron James, but Wojnarowski reports "evidence is mounting" that Walton could be fired if the Lakers fail to improve significantly moving forward. While they can chalk up several of their close losses to randomness, there is no substitute for winning. Rajon Rondo added 17 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in just under 26 minutes.

There was no amount of "act like you've been there before" that could have prevented the Lakers from showing how happy Saturday's win made them.

And the timeout might have been just what Portland needed to get back into the game. "We just had a really good road win and the group came together", Walton said.

As the team left Portland feeling good before they host the Toronto Raptors on Sunday at Staples Center, Walton said being scrutinized earlier in the week didn't necessarily make the victory more gratifying for him.

Due to the slow start and some questionable rotations and decisions, head coach Luke Walton has already been thrown on the hot seat by some people. "It's our choice either to hang on to those, or it's our choice to stay present and focus our energy and time on what we can do to get better".
