Magic Johnson tweets support for Luke Walton

Los Angeles Lakers vs Dallas Mavericks live streaming, Lakers vs Mavericks live streaming and Lakers live streaming info follows. Before that, LA had not picked in the top 14 of the NBA Draft since Jerry West plucked out Eddie Jones with the no. 10 pick in the 1994 NBA Draft. Players' futures will be decided and the competitive future of the team relies purely on free agency.

But, against the San Antonio Spurs' second-ranked defense, they were held to a much slower pace, scoring only 12 points on the break.

However, Kerr and other National Basketball Association coaches were recently prompted to speak up against Ball's recent tirades that were aimed at L.A. Lakers head coach Luke Walton.

While the role was far from inconsequential, Randle often seemed frustrated with his minutes.

CEO and co-owner Jeanie Buss, as well as team president Magic Johnson both tweeted their support of Walton within a little more than a day of each other. Ingram did not return to the game.

Then the five-time All-Star dropped the hammer. In Houston on December 20, Randle only played eight minutes. "He's a defensive coach, so I learned a lot on the defensive end from him".

On another play he looked like a second baseman catching the ball with one hand and immediately zipping it to an open shooter.

Walton has maintained throughout the curious ordeal that he had received private assurances from the Lakers that his job was safe. The usually efficient big German finished with seven points on 1-of-7 shooting.

Bryant, Joseph, Fields Will All Return to Clemson Next Season
Wide receivers Deon Cain and Ray-Ray McCloud, strong safety Van Smith and offensive guard Taylor Hearn all will turn professional. There's been no official word as to if standout defensive lineman Christian Wilkins will return for his final season.

In overtime, though, Randle scored four of his team-high 23 points and the Lakers pulled away. On that occasion, Randle simply attacked the Houston Rockets and could not be stopped. As he pointed out afterward, that represents progress because he's sometimes been on the bench down the stretch of close games. Three of those first four starts were ugly, non-competitive affairs. Lonzo Ball was also able to help the team spark a 13-0 run that essentially ended the game.

After Randle almost turned it over, Ball picked up the basketball and forced up a desperation shot that was well short.

Against Atlanta on Sunday, the second attempt at the same starting lineup displayed improvement.

It's the team's fourth consecutive win, though it was certainly in jeopardy. Brandon Ingram and Julius Randle kept the Lakers in the game, making eight and six points respectively. The Lakers outscored the Mavericks 54-30 in points in the paint.

"I don't know if guys expected this team just to fall and go through the motions", Gasol said. He set up forward LeMarcus Aldridge for an alley-oop, edging up their score while earning three assists. However, this season Ingram has improved in all three shooting categories.

The game was in the refrigerator, finally, and the Lakers claimed their fourth win in a row, with a winnable game in Memphis on Martin Luther King Jr.

It's early still, but it's clear that things aren't OK between Luke Walton and the Lakers organization.
