PHOENIX AZ – NOVEMBER 13  – Lakers

On Friday, the latest installment in a series of near-brawls came with 3:17 left in a 122-113 Suns win. First a dunk on an assist from Lonzo Ball, then a hook shot, a floater and a three-pointer.

Unfortunately for Ball, he was in a lose-lose situation. Suns rookie Josh Jackson stormed into the fray a few seconds later.

The Lakers (6-10) have lost two in a row at home after spending the previous week on the road.

"After dropping the first two games, we knew we were going in with a must-win mentality, that we want to punch first and win", Suns guard Devin Booker told reporters.

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball may be one of the most hyped prospects to come into the National Basketball Association since LeBron James back in 2003.

"Just a lack of focus", Ball said of the Lakers' effort.

It was on display December 20, when Devin Booker fouled Corey Brewer on a breakaway dunk and Larry Nance Jr. arrived to wallop Booker with a shoulder. While Devin Booker is an awesome talent, there isn't much else around him right now. They gave uip 90 points by halftime and weren't about to let that kind of thing happen again. "Seems like some of our guys really stepped up and made tough shots when they had to, or got to the free throw line". Brook Lopez finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds, while second-year forward Brandon Ingram added 17 points, six rebounds and four assists. The rookie from the University of Utah became the first Lakers rookie to get 30 points and 10 rebounds in a game since Magic Johnson did it in 1980. In the second one, Booker had words with the Lakers' bench when he fell to the floor in front of the bench after missing a 3-point attempt in the final minute. They host the Denver Nuggets on Sunday and Chicago two nights later before playing at Sacramento the night before Thanksgiving.
