Lonzo Ball Freezes Kemba Walker, Throws Down A Highlight Dunk In Return

Different venues, unfamiliar teams, and foreign playstyles make watching them feel a little special for the fans.

Kemba Walker had 19 points, seven assists and four steals as one of six Charlotte players to score in double digits, helping the Hornets roll to a 108-94 victory over the sinking Los Angeles Lakers on Friday at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The Lakers were expected to have their rough moments with their young roster, and this stretch of games was going to make it tough to pile up wins given the difficulty of the schedule. By the end of the first quarter, the Lakers trailed the Grizzlies 24-18. After playing a back-to-back set against Chicago and then a game in Sacramento on Wednesday, the Lakers have a rare four-day break before playing the Clippers on Monday. It was a rout as the Hornets beat the Kings 131-111. The Lakers are coming off a 96-133 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. This slide has seen them fall to last place in the Western Conference, as their slim playoff hopes ended very quickly.

"I believe in the character of our team and we'll fix it". So, I'm not surprised that this team has lost this many games, and injuries to two starters didn't help their chances. Still, I think the Hornets will want to play with a sense of urgency. They lost three overtime games, including the NBA's first double OT game of the season in a 148-142 loss to Houston on December 31.


During their last five games, the Lakers have scored an average of 107.8 points per game (1.1 above their season average) and allowed an average of 125.0 points per game (13.2 above their season average).

Due to the speculation of him possibly signing with the Lakers in offseason, there was a lot of excitement to see him play.

In the first game, Kyle Kuzma outrebounded Dwight with 14 rebounds. "Playing like garbage. Something I need to address and fix". The Lakers now rank 20th in the National Basketball Association with a free throw attempt (FTA) rate of 0.185, while Charlotte ranks seventh in FTA rate allowed (0.179). The team missed 12 of 33 free throws in the loss to the Grizzlies.

Los Angeles could have difficulty getting to the free throw line in this meeting.
