Around the league: James remains king

Age is just a number to Lakers' star LeBron James. At 35 years old, James is looking like the favorite for the NBA's MVP award for his efforts in February.

LeBron James was making a statement on the court when the Milwaukee Bucks had to make one of their own.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had been hurt two nights earlier while losing to James and the Los Angeles Lakers, and on Sunday afternoon they said the reigning MVP had a minor sprain of his left knee and would miss at least two games.

Shortly after, James and the Lakers closed out the Clippers for another big win. Milwaukee lost again later Sunday and dropped a third in a row Monday in Denver while resting other regulars.
