LOS ANGELES (AP) LeBron James hit his first free throw to put the Lakers up by two. Dwyane Wade sidled up to him before the second shot.

"Bro, just miss it so I can shoot the game-winner," Wade said in the waning seconds of their last game together. "Me and you. One on one. Just let me shoot it and go for it."

LeBron didn't miss. Dwyane didn't really expect him to.

Bledsoe's 20-12 lift Bucks over Cavs

MILWAUKEE (AP) It may not mean much in the standings by the end of the season, but a 16-point win over the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday may be a sign of the Milwaukee Bucks' transformation into a contender.

The Bucks had beaten the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors on the road the night before for a signature victory. Giannis Antetokounmpo was a last-minute scratch on Monday with neck soreness. The 20-loss Cavaliers were in town.
