Ingram, Ball lead Lakers to 107-97 win over Mavericks

Head coach Luke Walton was already without James (groin), Rajon Rondo (finger) and Michael Beasley (personal reasons) for the loss to the Thunder and will hope Kuzma does not make his injury list any longer.

The Lakers are just 5.5 games out of first place - despite sitting eighth in the Western Conference with a 22-19 record and just a 2-5 mark since James took a seat on the bench indefinitely following what was originally thought to be a groin strain on Christmas Day.

That's according to Cris Carter, who believes Kuzma is proving enough this season that the Lakers should do all they can to keep him out of any trade talks. However, if they intend to climb the standings, they need even higher season-highs, as well as more consistent 20-plus outings, out of their third-year slender playmaker.

James, a three-time NBA champion who has played in the past eight NBA Finals, left Cleveland in July to sign with the Lakers. However, the Lakers are down three of their best players, and clearly don't have the offensive firepower necessary to compete right now. The next possible return point for LeBron would be January 11th against the Utah Jazz.


Dallas wrapped up a four-game road trip on Saturday with a 106-100 loss at Philadelphia. Los Angeles has won just one of those contests.

"Brandon had some really nice crack-back rebounds tonight that we can get out and run [from]".

"For us to go somewhere, we're going to have to win on the road and that's been the biggest challenge all season", Harrison Barnes told the Dallas Morning News. Obviously, we did a little bit last year, but this year we always had Bron [James], we had Do [Rondo], and guys like that to help settle things down and get us in the stuff. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 110.2 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 109.7 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Doncic, though, is hitting 40.5 percent of his 3-pointers in that stretch and 43.1 percent of his shots overall.

Dallas fell for just the fourth time at home this season.
