What NBA games are on today, Tuesday 29 March?
We're getting ever closer to the playoffs and every game really counts, especially in the Eastern Conference where little can be taken for granted.
The playoff positions out west are pretty clear but there is still business to be done in the east with seeds to be determined and the final places sorted out. With just a few games to go, it is all to play for.
NBA schedule: Lakers at Mavs
The Los Angeles Lakers continue to hobble toward the finish line. Nursing a "horrible" ankle injury, superstar LeBron James is listed as doubtful for Tuesday night's game between the Lakers (31-43) and the host Dallas Mavericks (46-29).
James sprained his left ankle in the first half of Los Angeles' 116-108 setback at the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday. The four-time NBA MVP finished the game with 39 points and nine rebounds, but the Lakers dropped their second consecutive game and are clinging to 10th place in the Western Conference with eight games remaining.
"I mean, from the time I turned my ankle, I felt a sharp pain run up my leg.
It started getting hot. And I've been there with ankle sprains before," James said. "But I didn't want to come out of the game because I understood (the importance). I mean, I just wanted to win the game. I understood how big of a game it was for us."
