Lonzo Ball double-doubles again in Lakers' win over Spurs

DALLAS TX- JANUARY 13 Julius Randle #30 of the Los Angeles Lakers takes a shot against the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center

Rudy Gay, the Spurs' third-leading scorer at 11.5 points, will miss his seventh straight game with right heel bursitis. With the win, San Antonio improved to 28-14 overall and 10-12 on the road.

Danny Green (tightness, left groin) is questionable and Tony Parker (sprained right ankle) is doubtful against the Lakers.

The Spurs, winners 107-100 over the Sacramento Kings on Monday, have alternated wins and losses recently.

"It's disappointing. We need him", Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said. I'm sure most of us love playing for him too.

The Golden State Warriors' head coach also implied that Ball and the media coverage he is getting was an example of how, nowadays, "it doesn't matter if there's any substance involved in an issue". "So you put somebody else on the court that shouldn't be on the court based on matchups, or what you're trying to do defensively or offensively, so it's really a mish-mash". They hold a.500 record for January as they sit at 3-3, but have managed to win three straight games.

Los Angeles beat the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday and the Kings on Tuesday.

The tip-off between San Antonio and Los Angeles is 9:30 p.m. and the game will be shown on TNT.

The Lakers committed a season-high 25 turnovers against Sacramento, a number that would be highly hard to get away with against the Spurs.

On Thursday night, the San Antonio Spurs will go head-to-head with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Not that he needed defending, but Walton was backed up by fellow National Basketball Association coaches Rick Carlisle and Stan Van Gundy following Ball's comments. He went as far as to say that the head coach could no longer control his players, and while the Lakers was a good team, Walton was "not connecting" with them anymore. He gets other people easy shots. Before we get to that game, however, let's take a look at some takeaways from last night.
