Jazz seek to defend better versus Lakers

Ingram, LeBron lead Lakers in sloppy win over Jazz

And it also felt a little like Friday's freakish 90-83 win over the Utah Jazz when the Lakers coughed up a season-high 24 turnovers. We owe this Lakers' group a chance to prove their mettle, and of all his teammates, LeBron seems to think Lonzo has the most upside. "And he's been doing that as of late, [with] his aggressiveness".

The 21-year-old scored just nine points, but claimed 10 rebounds and provided two assists, while showing great maturity with his decision making. He played all 12 minutes, made his only shot from the field, picked up two assists and two rebounds, played active defense, and was instrumental in Los Angeles outscoring Utah 26-20 in the final frame to close out the victory.

The Magic's surge continued in the third quarter as they opened on a 15-7 run, forcing the Lakers into eight consecutive missed shots during the stretch. "He had a couple charges; that's absolutely fine", LeBron said in his mid-game assessment of Lonzo's play. "We are still a very good team, when we play the way we should play, we should be able to win against anyone". "I think they had trouble with that tonight and it really worked well for us".

That could spell trouble against a Lakers offense powered by James and augmented by Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma now scoring 116.2 points per game and playing at the league's fifth-highest pace. They were one of two teams that held their opponents to fewer than 100 points per game during the regular season. "The challenges of the day are the only things I am anxious about", Clifford said.

Dwyane Wade scored a season-high 35 points, the most ever by a Miami bench player.

"I'm just faster than a lot of people out there", he said. "All I asked was for our guys to bring the energy, the effort and get that crowd going".

That felt just like the OT win against Charlotte. He is Orlando's best offensive weapon and his consistency can only be of inspiration for the many young players that the Magic roster boasts.

"Coach puts a big emphasis for us to exploit that when they go small, use it to our advantage to try to get some easy ones", Vucevic said afterward.

But as Lakers coach Luke Walton aptly pointed out, focusing on the misses by James and Caldwell-Pope kind of misses the point.

"He doesn't [even] have 82 games under his belt yet", James said of Ball. I can see it, but sometimes for you personally, you have to continue to figure it out.
