LeBron James on Lakers' first home win | NBA Sound

LeBron James Lakers Spurs

After guiding the Lakers to victory in Phoenix the night before, McGee was back at it in Downtown Los Angeles, hanging up 21 points and seven rebounds.

The win marks LeBron first triumph as a Lakers' Monarch.

"It feels great", he said. "But it feels good for us to know that what we have been doing over training camp and these first few games of the season that we are continuing to get better".

The sophomore point guard finished with 12 points, eight assists, six rebounds and an eye-popping five steals. Though the Suns' immediate worry is Booker's health status after leaving the game in the third quarter with a strained left hamstring, Phoenix's broader concern is how the season's narrative has quickly flipped from promising to disastrous. Deandre Ayton, the first draft pick this year, had 22 points and 11 rebounds.

The visitors were without Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram, who are serving bans for their part in a brawl during defeat by the Houston Rockets on Sunday.

The three-time National Basketball Association champion put up 19 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds before sitting out the fourth quarter, with the Lakers 20 points ahead.

Lonzo Ball added a step-back 3-pointer of his own, capping a 15-2 run that put the Lakers up by five with three minutes remaining.

"That is what we keep harping on".

Collectively, Astros pitchers posted a WHIP of 1.099 in the regular season, the lowest of any team in more than 100 years. "We don't even know who we are going to play". "To be able to lead this team, it's incredible ", Cora said.

"We stuck to the game plan", James said. "How we approach the game, our physicality, our communication and that is what we did in the second quarter".

"He was causing havoc, getting his hands on balls, reading plays, coming in and rebounding", coach Luke Walton said of Ball. They missed some shots but that was the same thing that happened against San Antonio, but they made shots.

"We got better tonight and we are going to try and continue that going forward". "We need to start games with the same mentality that we started the second quarter". "But I think it's always going to start with our defense".

Stephenson and other Lakers said they couldn't help but notice Bryant sitting there in the corner. "We were talking about this morning that we're not buying in their record right now".

"This is what I want to say about the asthma", McGee said when asked about it after the game.

James now has 74 career triple-doubles, four shy of Wilt Chamberlain for fifth all-time, according to ESPN Stats & Information. James has three triple-doubles in his career against Phoenix. Stephenson finished with 12 points.

The two-time MVP, 30, finished three points short of his career high of 54 and three three-pointers short of breaking his National Basketball Association record of 13 made in a single game as he did not enter for the fourth quarter.
