Let Luke Walton explain to you why he went with a crazy starting lineup against Utah

Why the heck did Luke Walton run that starting lineup against Utah? He has an answer for you. The Los Angeles Lakers are dealing with a host of injuries, mostly in their backcourt, but nobody was prepared for the starting lineup that head coach Luke Walton put together. Brandon Ingram, Metta World Peace, Luol Deng, Julius Randle and Timofey Mozgov would never play together in our wildest of dreams, but that was the call Monday night against the Utah Jazz. That group played a total of eight minutes together and it was agonizing to watch. They couldn’t score, averaging just 49.1 points...

David Wright on track to begin baseball activity

The Mets third baseman looks to begin his rehab later this month.
