Ball not aware of his greatness - LeBron

LeBron James

Ingram, LeBron lead Lakers in sloppy win over Jazz

Los Angeles is still sitting pretty at 11-8 after starting the season on a three-game winning streak. Their offense, which is now ranked 12th in efficiency, ranks 18th in offensive rating in the 4th quarter.

There's something about Magic big men and the Lakers.

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.

He is not keen, however, on his reputation as a meticulous coach. "What I do is work". The Arsenal was in decline. "We had to stop that and start climbing".

That has to change and Ingram knows it. It makes him a very dynamic player and it makes us even better. The good news for the Lakers is that Ingram has become more of a willing cutter recently, but they could use him to unleash that part of his game even more. Sure, LeBron doesn't go into top gear during the regular season, but with the combination of youth and lack of depth on this Laker team he's been forced to shoulder more of a load on both ends and the results are apparent. We did a number on them in the half court defensively.

"Every single game is kind of different so I'm just going off of learning experiences, trying to see what each game has to offer where I can attack and each spot".

Ball was the team's second-highest scorer in the game, which would ordinarily be ominous but was enough on that night.

Mueller says Manafort violated plea agreement by lying to investigators
Both the special counsel and Mr Manafort's legal representatives asked the court to set a date for sentencing. He was convicted by a jury in August on tax and bank fraud charges in the other case in Virginia.

Los Angeles gave up 100 points through the first three quarters against Orlando last weekend, and never found an answer for Orlando 7-footer Nikola Vucevic, who scored a season-high 36 points. And it needs to be said James' clutch shooting has fallen off a cliff, including a 15% mark on 3-pointers in close games.

There's no such thing as a team having too many good decision makers.

However, it was their defense that was the difference in the game that saw them step it up on that end of the floor to hold the Jazz to a season-best 83 points while forcing them to shoot 38.8 percent from the floor and 17.4 percent from distance with just four 3-pointers made along with notching 11 steals. And they must do so while also finding the balance to assert themselves with their newfound aggression.
