On Friday, the Los Angeles Lakers announced that they had signed former UCLA Bruin Travis Wear for the remainder of the 2017-18 season after his second 10-day contract expired on Thursday night in New Orleans.Wear averaged 4.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 12.1 minutes per game over 20 days of service from Mar. 3 to Mar. 22, and Lakers coach Luke Walton regularly complimented the 27-year-old on his defense and ability to fit into the team's defensive structure, so the announcement to keep the forward on board for the final three weeks of the season did not come as a surprise. Lonzo Ball Struggles Late, Lakers Lose In addition to the defense, Wear also displayed an ability to step up and knock shots down when the NBA arena light shone brightest. The forward helped stretch the floor and shot 40 percent from three-point land in the 10 games he played prior to securing the contract.Notably, the Lakers did not sign the Mater Dei High School product to a multi-year non-guaranteed contract, as the team did with David Nwaba in a similar situation a year earlier. By signing the player for the remainder of the year, the Lakers should be able to make Wear a restricted free agent. Lakers Rookie Kyle Kuzma Setting Records Should the team require salary cap space to sign major free agents in the summer, the Lakers should be able to renounce Wear's restricted status and work out a deal to re-sign the player directly instead of having the put the player on waivers and risk losing him to another team, which is what happened with Nwaba when the Chicago Bulls claimed him.Wear played on the Lakers' Summer League team and also with the G-League affiliate South Bay Lakers prior to getting the call-up to the LA Lakers after the team got hit with a flurry of injuries late in the season. Brandon Ingram Gaining Confidence on Sidelines Based on his performance and on the structure of his contract, one would expect that the Lakers plan to have Wear in training camp ahead of the 2018-19 season.Photo Credit: Getty Images
On Thursday night in New Orleans, the Los Angeles Lakers led by double-digits entering the fourth quarter but managed to lose 128-125 to Anthony Davis and the Pelicans in a late-game meltdown.In the first half, the Los Angeles Lakers scored 73 points, made 10 of 19 three-point attempts and shot 58.1% from the field but somehow only led by two points. It was a familiar tale of shooting lights out but failing to execute on the defensive side of the basketball. Lakers Rookie Kyle Kuzma Setting Records Halfway through the contest, the New Orleans Pelicans only converted three of their 13 attempts from distance, but the home team did its damage in the painted area, where Davis and company outscored the Lakers 46-30 before the intermission. By the end of the game, the difference between the two teams in the painted area was 80-44.While the Lakers may not have winning the battle inside, they made shots from distance. In the second half, the Lakers continued their hot shooting from deep, as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope made seven of his first eight three-point attempts on the night and finished with 28 points on eight made three-pointers. Pacers Out Run Lakers 110-100 Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma made his first four attempts from distance and finished with 22 points. The rookie was one of five Lakers to score in double figures on the night.Riding the hot hands of Caldwell-Pope and Kuzma, the Lakers entered the fourth quarter leading by 11 points, 108-97. With Davis leading the charge and Rajon Rondo setting the table, the Pelicans outscored the Lakers 31-17 in the fourth quarter to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Brandon Ingram Gaining Confidence on Sidelines Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, in particular, had a rough night. Ball missed 11 of his 12 three-point attempts on the night, which meant his three-point shooting slump extended to its seventh game. Over the past seven games, Ball has only made seven three-pointers on 48 attempts, which calculates to a dismal 14.6 percent.With roughly two and a half minutes remaining in the game, Rondo hit a rare three-pointer to draw the Pelicans within one point, 125-124. Then, Ball's shooting struggles took center stage. The Pelicans seemingly dared Ball to shoot, and the Lakers' rookie obliged by missing a three-pointer.Rondo came back and made a layup to give the Pelicans a one-point lead with a shade over two minutes remaining. In the final minute, Ball attempted and missed another couple of three-pointers, as his slump hit new lows.With 4.6 second remaining, David trotted to the foul line and gave the home team a three-point advantage. LA had a chance to tie the game with a three-pointer, but Caldwell-Pope decided to pass up his three-point attempt and threw a turnover to Davis to end the ball game and complete the Lakers' collapse.Davis finished the night with a game-high 33 points and nine rebounds, while Rondo tabbed 24 points and 10 assists in the win.Photo Credit: Getty Images

The baseball world got some bad news when Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner suffered a broken wrist in the team's spring training game against the Oakland Athletics on Monday.However, one fan in particular was very distraught over the news, a two-year-old named Declan Riddle. Randle, Thomas Argue on Sidelines, Lakers Lose to Warriors Riddle and his father, Andrew, are die hard Dodger fans and were watching the game on Spectrum SportsNetLA when Turner was hit by a fastball on the left wrist by A's pitcher Kendall Graveman.Turner screamed in pain and immediately went to the ground after the pitch. Shortly thereafter, Turner left the game to get X-rays where he was diagnosed with a small non-displaced fracture in his left wrist. Lakers Beat Nuggets in Emotionally Charged Game Declan and Andrew were watching the game, and after the injury, the adorable 2-year-old was extremely concerned with Turner's well being."Justin Turner got hurt," said the concerned child. "I have to kiss his boo-boo."The cute, 27-second video can be seen below, and immediately went viral as it was viewed over 335,000 times. Multiple outlets picked it up, including our very own NBC LA.Eventually, the video made its way to Turner himself who tweeted his appreciation to little Declan and even offered him two tickets to a Dodgers game upon his return from the disabled list.Unfortunately, kissing Turner's wrist likely won't heel the fracture, or return him to the Dodgers lineup anytime soon. However, the team did get some good news on Tuesday after Turner saw a sports orthopedist who said that the wrist would not require surgery and would heal on it's own in a brace.Turner is expected to miss between 6-to-10 weeks depending on the healing process and eventual rehab assignment.Photo Credit: Twitter/@agr_dodgers22 This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
