Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers are deep into the off-season now and still making moves. Today, they received three prospects in a three-team trade with the Reds and White Sox being the partners.
Cincinatti dealt All-Star third baseman Todd Frazier to Chicago, who sent three prospects back to the Dodgers (the Dodgers sent three prospects to Cincinatti).
Acquired from the White Sox are starting pitcher Frankie Montas (their 3rd ranked prospect according to MLBPipeline.com), second baseman Micah Johnson and outfielder Trayce Thompson.
Thompson is the son of former Lakers power forward Mychal Thompson and brother to Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson.
Los Angeles Lakers
Sound the horns, the Lakers played team basketball en route to a double-digit victory!
Back home after a grueling 1-7 road trip in which the Lakers became (and remain) the lone win for the Philadelphia 76ers, among other terribleness, the Purple and Gold snapped a six-game skid last night at Staples Center.
The Lakers dominated the Milwaukee Bucks from start to finish, and Kobe Bryant (22 points) has now scored 20+ points five times in the month of December.
Rookie D’Angelo Russell played 30 minutes off the bench, dishing out a career-high seven assists to go along with his 19 points. The young point guard is showing development and more confidence in his ability after a timid start to the season, averaging 17.4 points in his last five games.
LA hosts Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets Thursday.
