Lakers Beat Spurs, Extend Winning Streak

Lakers Beat Spurs, Extend Winning Streak

On Thursday night, the Los Angeles Lakers beat the San Antonio Spurs 93-81 to claim their third straight victory, and for the second game in a row, everyone in the arena got tacos.

Clarkson is averaging a hair under 14 points per game with three assists and just under three rebounds as well.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers look to have recovered from their nine-game absence as they'll be gunning for a third straight win after taking down the Kings by 99-86 on Tuesday. "We give him the ball and get out of the way and we know that it is going to be a bucket". Ball summed up 18 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, and four steals. He finished with five points.

Following the game, head coach Luke Walton praised his young forward's performance that saw him shoot a career-high 21 attempts, but at the same time voiced that he wants him to stay within the flow of the game. "I love the fact that we had 30 assists on 37 field goals, that's how we want to play, that's what we need to be, but the ones that are sticking out in my mind are just soft, lazy passes". He gets other people easy shots.

Walton was not sated by the win, however. Brandon Ingram led the Lakers with 26 points, while Lamarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 20 points.

But the second unit let Sacramento right back into the game, and the Lakers were only up 31-27 at the end of the quarter.

He missed one game and parts of others but had a breakout showing against Ole Miss with 22 carries for 276 yards and a touchdown. Guice set the single-season school record for rushing yards in a 285-yard effort against Texas A&M in the 2016 season finale.

"Luke has been schooled in this game from the time he was a little kid", Popovich said. The Spurs tallied the final five points of the stanza to move within six. De'Aaron Fox had 15 points and Buddy Hield scored 13.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich suggested Thursday journalists should consider the source before printing comments from outspoken National Basketball Association father LaVar Ball about the job the Lakers' Luke Walton is doing coaching the young, struggling team. I think we're competing harder and we're executing better. Ball is the father of Los Angeles rookie Lonzo Ball. Lopez then missed from long range on what he admitted was a heat-check shot, but Ball was under the basket for a putback.

"They made the last run and just kind of sustained it", Fox said. He is showing that he can do more than be the Lakers' center in their smaller lineups.

"Larry might have been our most valuable player today", Walton said.

Whoever suits up for the Spurs, it's incumbent upon L.A.to take better care of the ball. Randle had his eighth double-double of the season.

The Lakers have shown signs of life in their last two wins, but those came against the Hawks and the Kings which is hardly anything to write home about these days.
