Serge Ibaka's career night leads Raptors past Lakers

Panic time? No? Welcome to basketball purgatory home of the Suns

Panic time? No? Welcome to basketball purgatory home of the Suns

I think every game, every road trip, every film session, every day that we're together is going to continue to get us more and more familiar with one another. Only time will tell if those changes will help the Lakers win more games in the rugged Western Conference. "The best thing is he's doing it with some real good composure".

James said his Lakers could've played better in certain areas against the Raptors, especially on the defensive end of the floor.

"We allowed them to go wherever they wanted to go, however they wanted to go, and they got into a comfort zone". He scored 18 points with six assists and two rebounds, and was a -16 in 28 minutes.

"They just came out and hit us right in the mouth". He injured his foot late in the Raps' win at Phoenix on Friday night.

Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard is out for Monday's game against the Utah Jazz as he continues to battle an ankle injury, TSN's Josh Lewenberg reports. But this game was destined to be a tough one for the Lakers. Fans at courtside included Denzel Washington, Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Ariel Winter, middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez, New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and UFC featherweight title contender Brian Ortega, who will fight Max Holloway for the belt in Toronto on December 8.

The decision deprived Lakers fans of their only chance this season to see Leonard, who could be an unrestricted free agent coveted by their team next summer.

"They have been playing like they are the best team in the Eastern Conference so far", James said, per ESPN, of Toronto (9-1), who were led by 34 points from Serge Ibaka.
