Warriors withstand Raptors comeback, Lakers and Clippers record National Basketball Association victories

Warriors withstand Raptors comeback, Lakers and Clippers record National Basketball Association victories

A rough shoulder injury for Lonzo Ball healed up just in time for him to help the Los Angeles Lakers snap their nine-game losing streak.

Earlier this week, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr called Ball the "Kardashian of the National Basketball Association", and Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle scolded ESPN for running the story. "I was very candid with him", Popovich said.

I usually stay away from discussing what-if trade scenarios, but it's tough to ignore the noise around this Lakers team, A name that's been mentioned in trade talks since the offseason is fourth-year forward Julius Randle. Ball and Ingram continued their excellent shooting nights and the Lakers came out on top 93-81, winning their third-consecutive game. "There is no doubt that they support me".

But the second unit let Sacramento right back into the game, and the Lakers were only up 31-27 at the end of the quarter.

Los Angeles followed with a 16-4 burst with Caldwell-Pope scoring eight of the points, including a 3-pointer to cap the spurt to give the Lakers a 68-57 lead. With his team leading 104-101, Randle grabbed a rebound on Lonzo Ball's missed jump shot and scored on the rebound with 18.3 seconds remaining, giving the Lakers a five-point lead they needed to extend a season-best four-game win streak.




The Lakers are set to play again Monday in Memphis. Lonzo Ball, for sure, presents some of the talents that Magic had.

"That was a pathetic performance by our team, and a lot of the reason for it was the way the Lakers played", San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. Often, Randle would argue with his coach late in games when being pulled out or visibly sulk on the bench when Walton went with other alternatives like standout rookie Kyle Kuzma, veteran center Brook Lopez or defensive-minded Larry Nance Jr. "We've got to fix it".

"Jeanie has always been great", said Walton, who has met with Johnson and says he has received support from the front office as the Lakers continue to rebuild. He was the only Arkansas player to finish in double figures, a troubling sign for a team that entered SEC play with five scorers averaging more than 10 points per game.

Ingram is cookin' It's been a steamy week for Brandon Ingram, who has scored 20-plus points in three of four games, averaging 20.8 in this stretch.
