Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers look to have recovered from their nine-game absence as they'll be gunning for a third straight win after taking down the Kings by 99-86 on Tuesday.

However, Lakers coach Luke Walton took 33 games before he finally thrust the 6-foot 9-inch, 250-pound versatile big man into the Lakers starting lineup, though that was where most outsiders expected the forward to begin the season.

In an appearance on the Rich Eisen Show, ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst opened up about the behind the scenes on the latest gossip in the National Basketball Association, revealing that many believe the Lakers don't support Walton as head coach.

"I thought Larry's play, from the first time he checked in, to leaving him in for the entire rest of the of the second half, he was putting out fires on defense", Walton said.

LeBron to the Lakers is going to be something you hear about a lot until it either does or does not happen. Ball and Ingram continued their excellent shooting nights and the Lakers came out on top 93-81, winning their third-consecutive game.

Buss also posted a picture of herself out at dinner with general manager Rob Pelinka and Luke Walton while tweeting that she was on her way to Memphis for the Lakers' upcoming matchup with the Grizzlies.

These were not the Cavs from Thursday night, an old, slow, disjointed group that threw in the towel shortly after the opening tap. One call DeRozan questioned was his being whistled for turning the ball over on a wild scramble with three seconds remaining.

In many ways, Julius Randle launched the Los Angeles Lakers' rebuild.

Dejounte Murray #5 of the San Antonio Spurs goes to the basket against the Los Angeles Lakers on January 11, 2018 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.

If LaVar doesn't deserve the respect they have shown him, there's no embarrassing or intimidating him, either, when all he has to do in reply is talk into a live microphone. Along with rookies Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma, Ingram is a part of what is known as the untouchable trio.

This BBB hype is nothing compared to LaVar's boast that he took LiAngelo and LaMelo to Lithuania so both could get to the Lakers by 2020. Golden State coach Steve Kerr, coach Stan Van Gundy and coach Gregg Popovich also expressed their support for Walton and their disdain for Ball being given a platform to speak his mind. San Antonio would once again face an opponent with a long list of injuries as Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, Rudy Gay and Danny Green were all unable to play.

"Whatever you want to say about LaVar Ball, he has smoked out the fact that the Lakers do not support Luke Walton". He was the only Arkansas player to finish in double figures, a troubling sign for a team that entered SEC play with five scorers averaging more than 10 points per game. I like the direction that they are going.
