Lakers earn statement win, hand Nuggets first loss

LeBron James,Rudy Gay

It took four tries, but LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are now in the win column for the first time this season.

It was the Lakers' second win in two days after struggling to a 0-3 start to the season.

Bryant sat with Lakers GM Rob Pelinka, his former agent, in a rare visit since the 20-year Lakers veteran retired in 2016.

"We could feel his anger", Lance Stephenson said afterward about Walton's message at the team's morning meeting on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. Wednesday night was the first of a three-game suspension for Rondo and a four-game suspension for Ingram. "We were able to get them out of it in the later stages of the first quarter, and then took it into the second quarter and into the half, all the way to the end of the game".

Lakers: James has five fewer triple-doubles than Wilt Chamberlain.

James had 28 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds to notch his first triple-double as a Laker Thursday, October 25 (Friday, October 26, Manila time) at the Staples Center.

Lakers: Rookie Svi Mykhailiuk had four points.

The visitors were without Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram, who are serving bans for their part in a brawl during defeat by the Houston Rockets on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Stephen Curry scored 51 points in three quarters, including 11 three-pointers, as defending champions the Golden State Warriors beat the Washington Wizards 144-122. The Nuggets entered giving up less than 100 points a game. It helps to have personnel on the perimeter who can hit shots to whom the Suns' playmakers can pass the ball, but there's no doubt that Kokoskov's values offensively are permeating the team on the floor. In fact, his perimeter game has been his go-to tool during a game's clutch moments.

Jonas Valanciunas scored 16 points, Serge Ibaka had 15 and Norman Powell added 10 for the Raptors, who also won five straight to start the 2015-16 season.

"He's a very gifted basketball player", James said of Ball. The compact guard finished last season with the Lakers, averaging 15.6 points in 17 games after getting traded by James' Cavaliers.

"I don't feel like people have been looking at the first three games we played".
