GAME PREVIEW: LAKERS AT SUNS


by NBA.com

PHOENIX -- The last time Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball faced the Phoenix Suns, he fell one assist short of becoming the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double.

Three weeks later, Ball returns to Phoenix with that box on his Big Baller resume checked.

Ball, the second player taken in the 2017 draft, had 19 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds in a 98-90 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday, breaking LeBron James' record as the youngest in league history with a triple-double. Ball was 20 years and 15 days old, five days younger than James.

The Lakers (5-8) will look to build on that when they play in Phoenix for the second time this season Monday.

The Suns (5-9) broke a five-game losing streak with a 118-110 victory over Minnesota on Saturday, when guard Devin Booker and small forward TJ Warren had 35 points apiece.

Ball, who also had four blocked shots and three steals against the Bucks, was not particularly taken by the record because of the outcome of the game.

"We took a loss, so it really doesn't mean nothing," Ball said.

"They were blitzing (aggressively attacking the high pick-and-roll) a lot, so that makes that roll pretty much open if you pass it quick enough. When they went under (the pick), I just shot it."

Ball made 7 of 12 field-goal attempts, 3 of 5 3-pointers. Rookie forward Kyle Kuzma had 21 points and reserve forward Julius Randle had 17 against Milwaukee, the Lakers' third straight loss.

"I've been shooting my whole life, so I'm not going to stop now," said Ball, whose unorthodox shooting style was questioned by some scouts.

Ball had 29 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in the Lakers' 132-130 victory in Phoenix on Oct. 20, the second game of the regular season for both.

"The triple-double is going to be the norm for him," Bucks coach and former NBA All-Star point guard Jason Kidd told reporters Saturday. "He's going to fill up stat sheets. We just need to give him time. We are trying to put him in a microwave and speed him up. He's going to make mistakes. But he competes."

The Suns got back on track when Booker and Warren combined for 70 points on 28-of-44 shooting Saturday. Booker had nine points late and Phoenix went on a 14-0 run for a 111-103 lead.

The pair were the first Suns' teammates to score at least 35 points in the same game since Amar'e Stoudemire (41) and Steve Nash (36) in a victory over Denver on March 31, 2008.

"When they're both rolling, it's going to be a good night for us," Suns coach Jay Triano said. "And I thought they both just found ways. 'Book' carried himself with his 35, but he also made sure when he had the basketball he was looking for TJ to make plays as well, and our guards did a good job of that."

Booker also had team highs with nine rebounds and six assists. He was back in form after being limited to nine points in a loss to Orlando on Friday, tying his season low. He has five 30-point games this season. Only Charlie Scott (1974-75) had more in the first 14 games in franchise history.

"We locked in with four minutes to go," Booker said. "After the couple losses that we've had, we've been looking for answers, and our answer tonight was effort. Coach said, 'Win, lose or draw coming in at the end of the game, the only box we need to check is effort. Did we play hard?'

"Tony (Warren) brings it almost every night. I have to keep up with him."

Warren has two games of at least 35 points while making two-thirds of his shots in each, tying Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo and New Orleans' Anthony Davis as the only players with multiple such games this season. All have two.

The way TJ Warren is playing, would it kill Luke to play Julius at power forward to help defend this guy tonight? Randle matches up well with this team. Hopefully he'll get big minutes.

This is a much needed win, we need to beat the bad teams. I can tell Rev is getting irritated by these losses :roflmao:. Don't worry Rev we will get better. Players like Randle and Clarkson are finally starting to age and Ingram is now in year 2. Lonzo is Good already, he just needs to improve his shot. Lonzo brings winning leadership to the team. The summer of 2018 will tell us all a lot, what moves Magic makes, etc..

All we can do is hope that phase 2 of the Magic Johnson rebuild works, whatever that winds up being. I don't have a good feeling about tonight's game for whatever reason.

Lakers win 100-93. Clarkson had 25, Lopez 15 + 10 Boards. Nice needed win by our Lakers. On a side note I am glad to see Donald T. intervening and getting with Lavar Ball to get his kid out of deep shit. Liangelo Ball got arrested in China for shoplifting in China and China doesn't fuck around with things like that. They are harsh regarding shoplifters. I guess Donald talked with China's President Xi Jinping about the incident, so hopefully he gets released with a slap on the wrist. I didn't even know Donald and Lavar were great friends? Who would've thunk that? Anyway glad the Lakers won, now 6-8 on the season.

Well I was wrong on a few counts. I thought we were going to lose tonight and I thought Randle matched up well against this team. As it turned out, we won and for some reason Corey Brewer played out of his mind again against these guys. Great game for Clarkson and solid performances by Lopez, KCP and Andrew Bogut. The team defense was great once again. Coming home on a good note!

I was sort of 50/50 on this game coming in but we were due for a win after dropping 3 in a row. Suns are just not that good, maybe we aren't either but I think we are better than the Suns. I don't want trade Clarkson or Randle. I think Magic should keep our main core and maybe add Paul George in the summer if PG still wants to play in LA. Not sure how PG likes OKC so far and not sure how their season will go? A lot hinges on those things. PG with Lonzo, Kuzma, Lopez, Ingram, Clarky, Randle, Pope, and Nance looks nice to me Brethren!

I watched the fourth quarter. My God are the Sixers going to be good in a few years, maybe great. Simmons, Embiid and Covington are great young players. Simmons is going to be incredible, better than Lonzo. If Embiid stays healthy, he'll be better than Towns, maybe the best big in the NBA. Covington is exactly what you want at the stretch whatever position. I had tickets for Wednesday's game, but I'm going on my annual golf trip. Oh well.

I agree. Nothing against Ingram but I wanted Ben Simmons so fucking bad! He is the real deal no doubt. How did you like my Clippers tribute full of laughs :waaaaa: BINGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
