L.A. secured its second straight win after going through a nine-game losing streak.
Los Angeles selected LaVar's son, Lonzo, with the second overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft out of UCLA. Averaging 12.5 points and 4.2 rebounds per game this season compared to his career averages of 18.3 points and 7.0 rebounds per game, putting the Lakers in a position where it is up to the younger players to lead and win games in the National Basketball Association.
Fox is pushing the pace better lately, but to be a fast-paced team, all five players must get out and run.
Vitale surely isn't the only ESPN personality who's upset with the network's coverage of LaVar Ball, but at this point, the father of the Lakers' star rookie is clearly someone people want to hear from. They had a 35-8 edge on the break this time, and Ball's 11 assists were his most since the rookie sustained a shoulder injury that sidelined him for six games.
But at least head coach Luke Walton has the trust of his team, right? "He makes winning plays for us".
Walton was not sated by the win, however.
This marked the Lakers' first double-double from a player without the use of points dating back to Lamar Odom back in 2008. It's just tough. It's the world we're in and we've all made it. Where we're going is we're going away from covering the game, and we're going toward just sensationalized news.

The justices said then that requiring companies to do more would amount to discrimination against interstate commerce. In a September 2017 ruling, the South Dakota Supreme Court, citing the 1992 precedent, ruled against the state.

Understanding the protests in Iran means digging much deeper than Trump's tweets
Haley praised the anti-government protesters as fearless and said "the United Nations must speak out" to support them. Not all council members see a need to weigh in.
Wow. Pretty harsh words from the three-point king. De'Aaron Fox had 15 points and Buddy Hield scored 13. Maybe he appreciates his dad trying to push the coach out.
Of course, we have to take the performance against the Rockets with a grain of salt.
"For one, the Lakers' record has been bad, and while James would make it a lot better, there is reason to doubt that even he and a super friend like George could fix all of the Lakers' problems", Faigen wrote Tuesday.
Interestingly, the Los Angeles Lakers have a boatload of money this summer.
But the point is once it started with Luke, I couldn't even recognize Lonzo for a while. Lopez then missed from long range on what he admitted was a heat-check shot, but Ball was under the basket for a putback. The 3-point shooting remains a big issue for a team that is dead last in 3-point percentage. "And in exchange for that, [ESPN] should back up the coaches". "It's a little different, but you just have to try to block it out as much as you can". "Eleven assists and only one turnover is awesome".
But I also wonder if there is a responsibility beyond getting clicks. The Lakers also lack contributing veteran players who can help the younger players learn how to win games. Randle had his eighth double-double of the season.
Through it all, though, one party has stood deafeningly silent: Lakers management. "Whether I score or not, I feel I can impact the game multiple ways and that's what I did tonight".
