MANILA, Philippines – The Los Angeles Lakers’ playoff bid has been dealt another huge blow.

LeBron James had another all-around game but his effort was not enough as the Lakers absorbed a 98-111 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Thursday, March 14 (Friday, March 15, Philippine time).

The Lakers remained at 11th place in the tough Western Conference with a 31-37 record, 7.5 games behind the Los Angeles Clippers – who carry a 39-30 card – for the last playoff berth.

Elsewhere, Wesley Matthews hit the game-winning putback as the Indiana Pacers hacked out a 108-106 triumph over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
