Ball is known for not mincing his words when expressing his thoughts on several topics, especially when it comes to the National Basketball Association since his son, Lonzo, is now one of the best rookies in the league and is playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. It's something that he and the Lakers will look to build upon in this upcoming three-game road trip with eyes toward extending their three-game win streak.
The victory was the team's 12th consecutive win over Sacramento and they have not lost to the Kings since November 15, 2014. The Spurs are now second in the Western Conference; the loss gives them a 10-13 road record. Los Angeles got on a 15-0 run at one point until San Antonio registered their first field goal of the quarter at 8:56 when Manu Ginobili scored on an and-one layup. Stalwart forward LeMarcus Aldridge scored 20 points and former Laker Pau Gasol led with 12 rebounds. Rudy Gay (right heel bursitis) and Kawhi Leonard (left shoulder strain) have already been ruled out.
In 40 games this season, Kuzma is averaging 16.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.
"He's so skilled, he's been in the league for so many years, he's still effective", Kuzma said.
"We helped one another", said guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

He punished defenders with his body, running with power and determination, as well as making nimble cuts upfield for big gains. Elliott booted a 53-yard field goal as time expired to bring Philadelphia within 10-9 at halftime.
The chance to win the game slipped through Julius Randle's hands. More entertainingly, San Antonio's Gregg Popovich settled for noting that LaVar is "just another fan from the peanut gallery". "But it's a situation that is going to take time, and it certainly doesn't need any outside chatter from people who do not have a clue and have not gotten over themselves". Defensively, however, the Lakers looked like a complete mess and lost all four games because rim protection was nearly non-existent.
An easy schedule awaits the Lakers. Brandon Ingram benefited the most at 26 points.
The Hawks reached a 10-2 run in the first four minutes of the game with Dennis Schroder leading the offense.
On Sunday, he scored six points and two assists after being on the court for nine minutes. I like the direction that they are going. "Whether guys are far back or too close, I can drive around them, I'm just trying to read the defence and make the best play", Ingram said after the win.
Williams followed up his 50-point explosion Wednesday against Golden State and a 30-point performance Thursday against the Kings with a 7-for-17 shooting effort that included four 3-pointers. Ingram made a block to score a back-door dunk.
