National Basketball Association executives, agents think Lakers eyeing David Fizdale

Seeking multiple expiring contracts in return for some intriguing pieces that could use some new scenery, while keeping an eye on the 2018 summer, the Los Angeles Lakers should be one of the busiest teams this season.

With his team leading 104-101, Randle grabbed a rebound on Lonzo Ball's missed jump shot and scored on the rebound with 18.3 seconds remaining, giving the Lakers a five-point lead they needed to extend a season-best four-game win streak.

After losing ine games in a row, the Lakers put together back-to-back wins after Monday's win over the Atlanta Hawks. He has been averaging 2.5 points after playing 12 games with the Hawks.

The Purple and Gold enforced a high level of defense with 15 steals, five coming from guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. He returned after getting his ankle taped, but the Lakers ruled him out for the rest of the game after he checked out with 3:54 left in the second quarter. San Antonio's 20 turnovers, stagnant offense and numerous injuries left them with no answers.

Some used the hashtag to share photos of female spectators wearing their team's colors in scarves thrown over their abayas. The kingdom's stadium had not been built with women in mind, so modifications were made so that they could attend matches.

On Sunday, he scored six points and two assists after being on the court for nine minutes. But the way the events have gone down, I've got executives in my ear. They have been happy with the internal progress of the team and it would be surprising if they decide to fire Luke Walton. Los Angeles native David Fizdale.

Lakers: They made an early 25-3 run on the way to a 37-18 lead. Instead, the younger Ball insisted that he'll "play for anybody" while Kyle Kuzma didn't mince words in his backing of Walton.

The front office, however, may have already identified a man they want to take over at the helm next season. "[I am] just trying to be the energy guy, trying to get everybody else to be the same". The 39-year-old doesn't dominate like he used to, but remains as lethal as ever from long-range (42.1 percent on 4.0 three-point attempts). Spurs backcourt players went on a 7-0 run during the fourth quarter to close the margin to two points. The matchup also features dynamic rookie point guard Lonzo Ball and Dennis Smith Jr. squaring off for the first time as pros. Ball was the second pick in the draft, with Smith picked ninth. "He was guarding bigger players, just all over the place".

Lakers: Open a three-game road trip at the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday.
