Lakers vs. Kings Final Score: Lonzo Ball’s double-double spurs 99-86 victory

Lakers vs. Kings Final Score: Lonzo Ball’s double-double spurs 99-86 victory

It wasn’t a pretty ending but the Lakers came out running against the Kings. The Los Angeles Lakers opened up an early lead over the Sacramento Kings that delivered enough impact to let them slip away from an ugly fourth quarter with a 99-86 victory. Notching back-to-back wins is a big step for the Lakers, who haven’t won a second game in a row since Dec. 9. Lonzo Ball racked up an unusual double-double, dishing 11 assists and grabbing 11 rebounds but only scoring five points. His 2-of-10 shooting night, despite impacting the game, is the kind of thing the Lakers were missing even if...

Lakers vs. Kings: Start time, TV schedule and game preview

The Lakers look to build on what hopefully was the spark they needed against Atlanta. If this were indeed a Hollywood film, the Los Angeles Lakers have gone through the rising action, and are nearing the climax of the story that is their season. It began with the release of veteran center, Andrew Bogut, on Saturday, possibly foreshadowing a series of transactions to come. On Sunday, the quote heard around the world was released when Lonzo Ball’s father, LaVar Ball, suggested the Lakers do not want to play for head coach, Luke Walton. The cherry on the figurative sundae that has been a...
Trade Rumors: Lakers have ‘made it clear” Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr. and Julius Randle are available

Trade Rumors: Lakers have ‘made it clear” Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr. and Julius Randle are available

The Lakers have put three of their youngesters on the trading block. Trade talks are starting to pick up with the NBA trade deadline just a month away, and in the thick of several of those conversations will be the Los Angeles Lakers, who are expected to aggressively try and clear space for one or two star free agents this upcoming summer. The Lakers, namely Magic Johnson, have made their intentions clear since before the season tipped off in late-September. Perhaps a little bit too clear, as their ambitious claims reportedly caused problems in the Lakers’ locker room, to the point where...
Lakers considered ‘strong front-runners’ to sign Jamil Wilson to 10-day contract

Lakers considered ‘strong front-runners’ to sign Jamil Wilson to 10-day contract

The Lakers may have found the shooter they’re looking for. Shortly after waiving 12-year veteran Andrew Bogut on Saturday, the Los Angeles Lakers reportedly began their “aggressive” search for a shooter on a 10-day contract and according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the search might already be over. Assuming he clears waivers today, the Lakers are strong front-runners to sign forward Jamil Wilson to a 10-day contract, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 8, 2018 Jamil Wilson signed a two-way contract with the Los Angeles Clippers earlier this...

Lakers vs. Hawks Final Score: Lakers snap losing streak in 132-113 blowout

The Lakers finally won in 2018! The Los Angeles Lakers finally snapped their nine game losing streak, delivering a blowout 132-113 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. Sure, it took playing the worst team in the NBA to finally notch a victory, but the Lakers needed the morale boost and played well through the entire game. Atlanta did get out to an early lead, but the Lakers quickly erased it. The 28-0 lead they held in fastbreak points at halftime paint a fairly concise picture as to how well things were going once the ball started rolling for LA. Everything went the Lakers’ way once they...

Lakers vs. Hawks: Start time, TV schedule and game preview

Hopefully the Lakers focus on basketball after a noisy Sunday afternoon. The Los Angeles Lakers are nine games deep into their losing streak, took an extra loss off the court after LaVar Ball threw Luke Walton under the Buss (ay), and now face the only team in the NBA with a worse record in the Atlanta Hawks. Lonzo Ball’s triumphant return lasted for approximately one quarter against the Charlotte Hornets, things quickly falling apart for the Lakers as they have been lately. The good news for the Lakers is their team is getting back to its old routine, with everyone healthy and...

LaVar Ball says Luke Walton lost the Lakers’ locker room; full quotes and reaction

This is fine. The relationship between the Los Angeles Lakers and LaVar Ball has hit another road bump. Ball has been critical of head coach Luke Walton throughout the season, but fully took off the gloves as the Lakers struggle through a nine game losing streak. LaVar is currently in Lithuania as his sons LiAngelo and LaMelo get accustomed to their new life playing overseas for Prienu Vytautas. That hasn’t taken his attention away from how his son Lonzo Ball’s team is doing, and LaVar once again stoked the flames of controversy. “You can see they’re not playing for Luke no...

Lakers News: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope set for full return with jail sentence concluding

Things are starting to get back to normal for the Lakers, especially for KCP. The Los Angeles Lakers are back to full strength come the start of next week. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will be released from Seal Beach Detention Center on Monday, capable of traveling with the team outside of California once again, reports Chris Haynes of ESPN. Caldwell-Pope plead guilty to violating his probation, failing to comply with an order in Michigan stemming from a DUI arrest in March. He was ordered to serve a 25-day sentence after the judgment on Dec. 13, and was allowed to be released for...

Lakers officially release Andrew Bogut, plan to ‘aggressively’ seek outside shooting help

So long, Bogut. The Los Angeles Lakers have brought an end to the Andrew Bogut experience, announcing early Saturday morning that they’ve waived the veteran big man. Bogut appeared in 24 games for the purple and gold, averaging 1.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in nine minutes per game. This brings the Lakers’ main roster down to 14, giving the front office options going forward. General manager Rob Pelinka already knows where he wants focus his attention with the new space, setting his sights on making an “aggressive” push to add shooting to the team through the use of a 10-day...

Lakers vs. Hornets Final Score: Lonzo Ball’s return spoiled in 94-108 loss

Lonzo finally returned for the Lakers but it made no difference. There was plenty of reason for fans to be excited for the Los Angeles Lakers game against the Charlotte Hornets as the game featured the return of the team’s prodigious talent Lonzo Ball from injury. Fans were hoping that the Chino Hills native would inject some much needed fervor into a team that had been suffering demoralizing losses in its recent stretch of games. Alas, it was not a glorious return for Ball as the Lakers fell 94-108 to the Hornets. The Lakers losing streak continues at nine consecutive losses. Ball’s...

Lakers News: Kyle Kuzma leads Western Conference rookies in All-Star voting

Kuzma and Ball are getting plenty of love from the fans heading into the final stretch of All-Star voting. All-Star weekend in Los Angeles might be a little strange without a member of the Lakers in the lineup, but the first round of voting results has Kyle Kuzma in position to make a sneak attack up the list. The early results have Kuzma notching 184,338 votes, good for ninth among frontcourt players in the Western Conference. He’s less than 4,000 votes behind Karl-Anthony Towns (188,240), but over 30,000 above LaMarcus Aldridge (153,599). Kuzma also happens to be the leading vote-getter...

Game thread: Rockets vs. Warriors

Game thread: Rockets vs. Warriors

Both the Rockets and the Dubs are shorthanded for tonight’s game. The Rockets are about to face their toughest opponent of the season, and they’ll be doing it without their best player. James Harden will miss his second game of a 2-4 week injury time frame, and the Rockets will also be without Luc Mbah a Moute and Nene. Houston did get a bit of good news in the Golden State Warriors will be without Kevin Durant, who is sitting tonight with a strained calf, but the Dubs have most of their other key members (save Andre Iguodala) pretty healthy at the moment. Most importantly for them,...

Kyle Kuzma says Lakers took ‘five steps back,’ promises fans they’ll turn around season

The night is always darkest just before the dawn. The Los Angeles Lakers’ crash-and-burn return to reality has not been pretty over the last few weeks. Blame can be placed on injuries, an incredibly unforgiving schedule and playing above their ceiling a bit before everything went downhill, but Kyle Kuzma isn’t accepting any of those excuses. The Lakers’ dynamic rookie has been in a bit of his own funk, hitting what appears to be the infamous rookie wall. He’s also been dealing with a quadriceps contusion, and averaging 35.9 minutes per outing over the last 10 games. “We had no...
Luke Walton says Lakers organization, fans deserve better

Luke Walton says Lakers organization, fans deserve better

The vibes around the Lakers have hit a new low for the season. The Los Angeles Lakers sustained their worst loss of the season, losing by 37 points to the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday night in a STAPLES Center blowout. The loss felt like a culmination of poor efforts during their eight-game losing streak coming to a head. Strangely enough, the Lakers were the first to strike during the matchup, galloping out to a 10-0 lead to open the game. Something changed after that, and Lakers head coach Luke Walton couldn’t quite pinpoint where it all went wrong. “I’m gonna have to get to...
Lakers vs. Thunder Final Score: Paul George shows out in front of home crowd, Lakers get blown out 133-96

Lakers vs. Thunder Final Score: Paul George shows out in front of home crowd, Lakers get blown out 133-96

The Lakers failed their first audition for Paul George. Paul George showed no mercy for his future team as he poured on 24 points in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 133-96 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers were hot coming out of the gate, moving the ball, playing team defense and hitting shots they haven’t made in recent games. However, after taking an early 10-0 lead and ending the quarter tied at 26, the Lakers let their foot off the gas and gave up 37 points in the second quarter. It would only get worse from there. Leading way for the Thunder was none other than George,...

Paul George has huge praise for Lonzo Ball ahead of Lakers matchup

Add George to the list of believers in Ball. One of the biggest missions the Los Angeles Lakers set out on this season is proving to the star players they long for that they have tantalizing young talent to lead, should they decide it’s time to make the move to Hollywood. As Paul George prepares to face the purple and gold for the first time since openly asking to be traded to the franchise he grew up cheering for over the summer, the #FutureLaker buzz is back in the air. George dropped an assortment of juicy quotes for reporters gathered in Los Angeles while the Oklahoma City Thunder...
Paul George says ‘comical’ Lakers tampering charges came from fishing friendship with Brian Shaw

Paul George says ‘comical’ Lakers tampering charges came from fishing friendship with Brian Shaw

The Los Angeles Lakers are playing host to Paul George Wednesday night, with the Oklahoma City Thunder enjoying a two-day stay in Southern California. That’s led to the re-opening of the $500,000 wound the NBA dished out to the Lakers in relation to tampering allegations from the Indiana Pacers. The NBA investigated the matter and, according to the official NBA press release, discovered communications between Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and George’s agent Aaron Mintz that would lead to the biggest fine in league history for tampering charges. This occurred back in August. George...
