Lonzo Ball Lakers lose Brandon Ingram beat Mavericks in OT 107-101

Lonzo Ball Lakers lose Brandon Ingram beat Mavericks in OT 107-101

Since Randle arrived in 2014, the Lakers have drafted in the lottery for three straight years as the team struggles to gain solid footing and sits in a three-way tie for last place in the Western Conference 40 games into the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

According to some reports, the Los Angeles Lakers apparently do not have "unconditional support" for their head coach Luke Walton and there might be other names lingering in the minds of the organization.

It's a mindset that Ingram has adopted looking to stay aggressive on each play with the goal of making the right decision for the betterment of the team on every possession.

"Everybody was on a string together", Ingram said. "Just reading the defence, trying to be better off of instincts".

The defense was also hurt by the fact that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope could not travel outside of California with the team, Lopez was still recovering from a sprained ankle and rookie Lonzo Ball was out with a shoulder injury.

"He pretty much is the offense", Ball said. "We rebounded the ball, and we got out in transition". "He scores pretty easily and that is his game".

Paul George added 17 and eight rebounds as the Thunder won despite shooting 40.2 percent (39-of-97) from the floor and getting seven points from Carmelo Anthony, who missed 11 of 14 shots.

Many would question putting the Lakers (15-27) in that category, but Los Angeles undeniably is stocked with talented young players who appear to be finding their way, as evidenced by the Lakers' season-high four-game winning streak.
