Lonzo Ball’s passing and rebounding set the tone for a thriving Lakers offense

The Lakers had one of their best offensive performances of the season, and Lonzo’s fingerprints were all over it. Lonzo Ball’s triple-double rightfully dominated headlines Sunday night into a fresh week, but the Los Angeles Lakers were in full swing as a team against the Denver Nuggets. The Lakers dished out a season-high 36 assists on 53 made field goals, with 11 of those dimes coming from Lonzo. “There was a great commitment to that,” Julius Randle said of the Lakers’ focus on making the extra pass as a group. “The ball movement was fantastic, and it made stuff easy on the...

Highlights: Lonzo Ball notches the second triple-double of his career

Get ‘em, Lonzo. The Los Angeles Lakers housed the Denver Nuggets Sunday night, and it certainly didn’t hurt that Lonzo Ball turned it on for the second triple-double of his career. It also didn’t hurt that Nikola Jokic and head coach Mike Malone were ejected, or that Paul Millsap suffered a hand injury during the game. I digress. Lonzo was all over the court, wrapping up rebounds and dropping dimes all around the Nuggets. His 11th point, a one-handed alley-oop that somehow went in, was one of the most memorable baskets of his career yet. Credit to Julius Randle for quarterbacking in...

Lakers vs. Nuggets Final Score: Lonzo Ball’s triple-double powers Lakers in 127-109 victory

Lonzo messed around Sunday night and the Lakers enjoyed the big boost he provided. The Los Angeles Lakers looked to get back on track after losing four of their last five games. Lonzo Ball notching a triple-double in a 127-109 victory over the Denver Nuggets would do just that Sunday night. Kyle Kuzma started the game scoring five points in four minutes but was taken out after missing a defensive assignment. Mike Trudell said on Spectrum Sportsnet telecast that Luke said, “[Kuzma] has no problem offensively, but he has to worry about his overall game.” Another player that start the...

Lonzo Ball’s polarizing season, shooting struggles, and how he’s still impacting the game

Lonzo Ball’s polarizing season, shooting struggles, and how he’s still impacting the game

Don’t overlook the impact Lonzo Ball’s making, even if the shooting struggles are easy to focus on. In sports, there are certain athletes that people simply love to hate, and in turn want to see fail. It could be due to the manner in which the individual presents him or her self, the style in which they play their sport, or simply because of the attention they receive. With only a small number of professional games under his belt, and the entire circus of expectations and myth behind him, Lonzo Ball has swiftly become one of these athletes, and this is not likely going to change...

Lakers News: Luke Walton makes it clear benching Lonzo Ball isn’t a discussion

Lonzo is struggling, but Walton isn’t ready to entertain the discussion of playing him off the bench. Lonzo Ball may have been benched in the fourth quarter of each of the last two Los Angeles Lakers games, but a permanent shift to the bench as a reserve isn’t something head coach Luke Walton is thinking about right now. It’s been a rough start to the season for Ball, but Coach Luke isn’t planning on any drastic shift to his starting lineup to reflect that. “He's our starting point guard. There's no talks as of now of moving Lonzo to the bench... he’s our starting point...

We like where this is headed! The dream is becoming a reality for Los Angeles Lakers fans. Kobe Bryant and Kyle Kuzma have officially connected, privately meeting for dinner Tuesday night at a steakhouse in West Hollywood, as detailed in a fantastic story from Bill Oram of the OC Register. Kuzma, the Lakers’ surprising rising star rookie that’s made more positive headlines than Lonzo Ball at this point, has the kind of tantalizing potential that feels it could go anywhere. He’s decisive with the ball, can break his man down off the dribble, can space the floor, AND he’s a positive...

Magic Johnson says Lakers won’t ‘mess’ with Lonzo Ball’s shot, compares LeBron James’ rookie hype

Magic Johnson had some interesting things to say about Lonzo Ball. Lonzo Ball shooting 25 percent from deep is certainly a stat to keep an eye on if you’re a Los Angeles Lakers fan. There’s no denying that Ball’s inconsistent shooting, while attempting a team high 4.9 three-point attempts per game, have been a problem the offense is having trouble working around. Ball’s shooting form, which has been well-documented and analyzed already, is certainly awkward. Is it hampering him, and should the Lakers consider taking his shooting mechanics into the workshop? Lakers president of...
