Brandon Ingram scored 26 points, and Lonzo Ball contributed 18 points, 10 rebounds and six assists as the Los Angeles Lakers knocked off the San Antonio Spurs 93-81 on Thursday in Los Angeles. Owner Jeanie Buss and team president Magic Johnson both tweeted their support for the Lakers head coach on Saturday. He went as far as to say that the head coach could no longer control his players, and while the Lakers was a good team, Walton was "not connecting" with them anymore.

At the beginning of the weekend, there were reports and rumors, brought to the spotlight by ESPN's Brian Windhorst, about some Lakers' executives not having unconditional support for Walton. "Nobody wants to. But our bosses tell us we have to, because of the ratings, because of the readership.' Somewhere - I guess (LaVar) is in Lithuania - LaVar Ball is laughing at all of us", Kerr added. And then the icing on the cake, he gets to spend a few years up with Steve [Kerr] at Golden State with a great organization and a great group. Ingram's development will help the Lakers now and down the road, as a young team looks for a star to emerge from its core.

"Big shoes to fill", said Worthy, now a Lakers analyst for Spectrum SportsNet. With the win, Los Angeles improved to 13-27 overall and 8-14 at home.

Seeking multiple expiring contracts in return for some intriguing pieces that could use some new scenery, while keeping an eye on the 2018 summer, the Los Angeles Lakers should be one of the busiest teams this season.

The Lakers are set to play again Monday in Memphis. As the year has played out, Ingram, Ball, and Kuzma have been earmarked as "untouchables", meaning that they won't be traded.

But in overtime, Randle got back to work, scoring four of his game-high 23 points to go with 15 rebounds.

Next coach to speak on the issue: Gregg Popovich. He was the only Arkansas player to finish in double figures, a troubling sign for a team that entered SEC play with five scorers averaging more than 10 points per game.

"What coach has LeBron [James] tweeted about most recently?"

"Yeah, I'm going to enjoy it for sure", Randle said. This performance marked Ingram's 11th 20-point outing of the season and his third in the month of January while shooting above 52 percent from the field in each of the last three games.
