  'Cat-Quick Lonzo Provides Game Changing Defense

The 30 missed three-pointers is a season high and also the worst percentage in Lakers history when the team has shot attempted more than 30 three-pointers.

Coach Luke Walton has had to lean more on James and Ingram to facilitate with Rondo recovering after surgery.

"I'm always fresh", James said at the start of the season, per ESPN. I think (Thursday) was one of those instances where they looked at me and they wanted me to close the game. James did the same thing with the Cavs, especially with head coach Tyronn Lue, and it's part of what comes along with having arguably the greatest player on the planet on the roster. "The success we had previous year, it wasn't just me".

The Lakers scored the game's first 13 points and jumped to a 23-point lead in the first quarter, but led only 56-50 at halftime after Sabonis' 14-point second quarter.

The Lakers boss just can't let #PlayGate (#IgnoreGate?) go.
