Lonzo Ball Discusses Walking Away from Scuffle in Loss vs. Suns

Lonzo Ball Discusses Walking Away from Scuffle in Loss vs. Suns

After meeting three times in the first month of the season, the Lakers and Phoenix Suns will spend the next few months apart so they can think about their feelings. As NBA "fights" go, this was more intense and physical than the LeBron-Enes Kanter conflict, but certainly less serious than Bradley Beal and Draymond Green hugging each other to the floor.

Rookie Lonzo Ball, who made waves on Friday by sporting a tight new haircut, finished with six points, six rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Lakers shot 49 percent from the field and seven of 25 from the three-point line but they just came up against a determined Suns team led by 33 points from Devin Booker.

"It's the NBA", Ball said after the game, according to reports.

And on the final, he added: "It's another match tomorrow and it's the last match of the season - it's on". It could be the expectations for him, as well.


Lakers forward Brandon Ingram sided with Ball, telling reporters the skirmish was "all false action".

"It's the NBA", Ball said. "We probably came in complacent".

Thakur Som, who is an active member of the Samajwadi Party, warned the Bollywood actress to leave the country or face beheading. Amidst these protests and threats, Mumbai police have already beefed up the security for the filmmaker and Deepika Padukone.


Booker scored 36 points in the Suns' home loss to the Lakers on Monday, and he kept up his history of torrid performances against LA. He hasn't even been the best rookie on the team - Kyle Kuzma is averaging 16.4 points and 7.0 rebounds.

One night after giving up 90 points in the first half to Houston, the Suns yielded a measly 53 first-half points to the Lakers while jumping out to a 12-point lead. Meanwhile, the Lakers are 0-4 ATS in their last four after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall. The rookie from the University of Utah became the first Lakers rookie to get 30 points and 10 rebounds in a game since Magic Johnson did it in 1980.

It has been a challenging season for the building programs in Chicago and Phoenix, but they will meet Sunday on a high.
