3 takeaways from huge win against San Antonio Spurs

"It's nothing serious", Leonard said after the Spurs' 93-81 loss to the Lakers on Thursday night. Should Lonzo Ball solidify things at guard, the team may be on the rise in future seasons. Ball hit three 3-pointers and didn't miss a shot in the first half.

"He's been great for us, and he's continuing to improve", Walton said about Randle's adjustment into his new starting role after the game. "Just trying to be aggressive on every single play".

While Ingram certainly provided plenty of his own offense, he also did more playmaking than his three assists would suggest. "Luke is an outstanding coach, a young coach with a young team".

"There's some people that are straight scorers, (and) Brandon is not one of them", Walton said. He's a player that can score a lot, but he's also a very good play-maker.

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.

The lawsuit links global warming to extreme temperatures, severe snowfall, risen sea levels, and more flooding across the state. De Blasio's office said climate change is "perhaps the toughest challenge New York City will face in the coming decades".

That would extend the longest postseason drought in franchise history for the 16-time National Basketball Association champions, but the Lakers' young roster has showed signs of life with three wins after a nine-game losing streak. Meanwhile, Randle tabbed 22 points, 14 rebounds and six assists on the night.

Part of Nance's workload included covering five-time all-star LaMarcus Aldridge, who was coming off back-to-back 30-point games. The Lakers will try to add two stars this summer when LeBron James is expected to headline the free agency class, and Worthy thinks his old point guard will not come up empty-handed.

The Spurs stormed back to take a 53-52 lead after a 3-pointer from Bryn Forbes, but the visitors' advantage was short-lived. The Spurs have also had to overcome injury concerns as their superstar, Kawhi Leonard, has been sidelined almost all season.

The most recent case comes from San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, widely known for his oft-hilarious, unabashed candor. "Their desire was at a totally different level than ours was.They sustained that effort, that physicality for the entire game". It's the conclusion to a three-game road trip that already saw the Silver and Black go 1-1, with a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers and a win over the Sacramento Kings.
