Spurs comeback falls short in 93-81 loss to Lakers

The crux of the Lakers' half-court offense revolved around one man: a red-hot Brandon Ingram.

The San Antonio Spurs have split their last six games but they will be looking to build on Monday's 107-100 road win over the Kings.

Then we had a chance for Lonzo to really put this to a rest and stand behind his coach or at least let us know how he felt about the matter and what his father had stated. "It's going to be a bucket. He scores pretty easily and that is his game". Ball hit three 3-pointers and didn't miss a shot in the first half.

He even included a slick, looping finger roll after putting his defender into the popcorn machine. As a player, he wasn't the best athlete in the world.

While Ingram certainly provided plenty of his own offense, he also did more playmaking than his three assists would suggest.

"We responded like a team that's failed a lot, and kind of got sick of it", Walton said.

Talks eventually broke down, but they could pick back up if the Lakers can't find a suitable partner to attach Luol Deng's bad contract or another player to offload.

Grinding Out the W While Ingram provided the firepower, Ball organized the troops.

After posting an odd double-double due to his poor shooting, Lonzo Ball would drop 18 points 7-of-11 (4-of-7 from long range) against the Spurs.

Coach Luke Walton is eager to see whether they can maintain the momentum that's making their future look slightly less bleak.

"He's so skilled, he's been in the league for so many years, he's still effective", Kuzma said.

Larry Nance Jr. added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers, who won their season-best third consecutive game. Half of his boards came on the offensive side, where he also threw down a stadium-shaking alley-oop. So he's way more than ready to handle this situation. "He was guarding bigger players, just all over the place".

"Luke [Walton] has been schooled in this game from the time he was a little kid". Aldridge scored eight points and Ingram secured nine in the period.

The former Indiana Pacers star and current TNT analyst wants Lakers president Magic Johnson to lay the smack down (figuratively, though I can't say I would mind seeing the literal interpretation either) on LaVar for his distracting the team. "They were very physical, much more physical than we were". "Their desire was at a totally different level than ours was.They sustained that effort, that physicality for the entire game".

The Lakers had competitive energy early in the game, ending the first quarter with a 20-15 advantage.
