James flirted with what would have been his 74th career triple-double, finishing with 19 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds before sitting out the fourth quarter of a 131-113 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. LeBron also talks about having Kobe Bryant in attendance for Thursday's game and the importance of Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma stepping up with the absence of Rajon Rondo and Brendan Ingram. Kokoskov brings European influence to the Suns, one built around teamwork and a philosophy of passing up a good shot for a great one that has held quite a few great coaches in good stead over the years.
"It feels great to win, period", he said.
Kuzma added two huge dunks down the stretch of Los Angeles' second win in two days after an 0-3 start. No doubt we will continue to hear mentions of McGee's asthma as the season goes on, particularly on national broadcasts when these sorts of things get trotted out as details for color commentators to mention. Down the stretch, Ball made a series of crucial defensive plays: poking free a steal, successfully guarding Jokic in the post and then drawing a charge on Jokic as the Lakers extended their late-game lead.
Lance Stephenson came off the bench again and sparked the Lakers' fourth-quarter run by scoring eight of his 12 points, including burying back-to-back 3-pointers during the spurt.

Jimmy Butler scored 23 points, Derrick Rose had 16 and Taj Gibson 13 for Minnesota. The compact guard finished last season with the Lakers, averaging 15.6 points in 17 games after getting traded by James' Cavaliers. "Just being cautious", he said.
Paul finished up a two-game suspension for his role in the fight with Lakers Rondo.
His 51 points is the most by an National Basketball Association player this season, surpassing Detroit Pistons power forward Blake Griffin's 50 in their victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday, while Curry also moved above Suns guard Jamal Crawford into fifth on the league's all-time three-pointers made list, with 2,162.
