  • Lonzo Ball Lakers lose Brandon Ingram beat Mavericks in OT 107-101

Ingram's development will help the Lakers now and down the road, as a young team looks for a star to emerge from its core.

The Lakers have shown signs of life in their last two wins, but those came against the Hawks and the Kings which is hardly anything to write home about these days.

People around the National Basketball Association had this idea because the team did not publicly express support for Walton after LaVar Ball told ESPN Monday the young players for the Lakers did not want to play for the young coach.

And there was Lakers forward Julius Randle returning to his hometown amid speculation that the Mavericks might be a landing spot if the Lakers decide to trade him. "You always believe in your team".

Meanwhile, the Lakers are coming off an impressive three-game winning streak.

Thursday's matchup between the Spurs and Lakers will be the first of three this regular season.

Dennis Smith Jr. scored 17 of his 23 points in the first half for Dallas.

Nance fought hard on the defense end while also putting in work offensively with a double-double that included five offensive rebounds, which were key in the Lakers' 12-2 advantage in second-chance points. Lonzo, who has appeared in 35 games, is up to 10.2 points per game, in addition to 7.1 assists and 7.1 rebounds per night.

"Just continue to be aggressive", Ingram said.

Randle shot 9-of-15 from the field, constantly taking his man off the dribble and finishing with strength at the rim. He's projected for 22.6 minutes and 23.7 FanDuel points in Monday's road game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

"There's a sanctity to the coaching profession that's important", Carlisle said Saturday. "This is an important experience for them and we're trying to win".

"Big shoes to fill", said Worthy, now a Lakers analyst for Spectrum SportsNet. He made 11 of his 21 attempts from the field, for a 52.4% field goal percentage (2/5 from the line, 2/5 from three-point range). Certain things I can probably show you better than tell you, but I've done a tremendous amount of growing. Spurs backcourt players went on a 7-0 run during the fourth quarter to close the margin to two points.

Worse was Lonzo's response - "I can play for anyone" - or was it just low-key Lonzo being Lonzo?

"With Kobe [Bryant] gone and the young core players that we have, and I think players understand and see what Lonzo Ball brings to the table as a point guard, I really think we are in a good place and I think [Johnson] will be able to deliver next year".
