  • LaVar Ball: Lakers 'don't want to play for' Luke Walton

Popovich's Spurs will have to deal with Lonzo on the court Thursday when they face a Lakers team riding a two-game winning streak following a nine-game losing streak.

"Because that has been revealed here: That they do not have unconditional support for Luke".

Other Lakers were more full-throated in their support. Los Angeles native David Fizdale.

"We responded like a team that's failed a lot, and kind of got sick of it", Walton said. So, I'm excited with the way we're playing. But the way the events have gone down, I've got executives in my ear. The Lakers posted a 7-0 run to hold a 92-87 edge with 1:25 remaining in regulation as Caldwell-Pope began the spurt with a go-ahead 3-pointer and Clarkson and Randle added baskets to make it 92-87.

"That was a pathetic performance by our team", said Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. Just effort and will. I think we're competing harder and we're executing better. 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). Kentavious Caldwell-Pope played a solid defensive game and contributed down the stretch with 10 points and four rebounds.

Veteran guard Tony Parker was out with an ankle injury, Rudy Gay did not play due to a sore right heel. Green missed his fifth consecutive game with a groin strain. "It's just another fan in the peanut gallery with an opinion, which is meaningless".

However accurate or inaccurate Ball's comments may be, it has caused enough of a distraction for the team and has turned social media into a hotbed of conversation about how harmful his outspoken comments are for Walton's job security and to the organization. The coach talked the star big man out of his feelings after a few dinners and meetings. Dorsey recalled Tucker teaching him to "play with tenacity" back in his high school days. "I told him, 'I'd be happy to trade you". Previous year was a good initiation for him on a team that had struggles, had injuries and a tough schedule early.

"And they say, 'Well, we don't want to".

Leonard's status for Saturday night's home game against the Denver Nuggets is uncertain.

The Lakers, 14-27, are en route to Dallas for a matchup against the Mavericks tomorrow night, followed by road games in Memphis and Oklahoma City next week.
