23 Jan 2017 at 1:49am
(The Sports Xchange) - The Los Angeles Lakers have endured some low points in recent seasons, but the nadir occurred Sunday. The Dallas Mavericks blitzed Los Angeles in the second quarter and handed the Lakers the worst loss in franchise history, 122-73. "We have teaching points, but what I say to them behind those doors, that is between us," Lakers coach Luke Walton said.

The Los Angeles Lakers crashed to the heaviest defeat in the iconic NBA franchise's history on Sunday, slumping to a humiliating 122-73 loss on the road against the Dallas Mavericks. The Lakers, who are in the midst of a rebuilding phase after two disastrous seasons, hit rock bottom in Dallas after a nightmarish first half that saw them trailing by 34 points at the break. "We didn't show up to play, honestly, which is frustrating," Walton told a press conference.

Lakers' Russell will miss game against Mavericks (The Associated Press)
22 Jan 2017 at 5:37am
The Los Angeles Lakers won't have D'Angelo Russell for Sunday's game against the Dallas Mavericks and for the next one to two weeks. The Lakers announced Saturday night that Russell underwent an MRI and was diagnosed with an sprained MCL in his right knee. While the Lakers (16-31) went on to win the game, they certainly don't want to be without their second-year quarterback for long.

Penny Hardaway says he was 'spoiled' with the Orlando Magic: 'I took it for g...
21 Jan 2017 at 9:29pm
By the time Anfernee ?Penny? Hardaway was traded away from the Orlando Magic in 1999, the team?s fledgling would-be dynasty was long over. It died in an instant in July 1996 when Shaquille O?Neal left the franchise as a free agent to join the Los Angeles Lakers, leaving his teammate of three years to play out three more fitful seasons with the club before asking to move West himself. The Magic made the playoffs three times and the NBA Finals once in three seasons with Hardaway and O?Neal playing alongside each other, and they seemed fit to rule the league landscape even with Michael Jordan returning to the Chicago Bulls after an 18-month sabbatical spent mostly playing minor league baseball.
Williams, Young lead Lakers to 108-96 win over Pacers (The Associated Press)
21 Jan 2017 at 6:56am
Although Luke Walton resisted the urge to shout about it, the coach was clearly proud of what the Los Angeles Lakers can do when their crowded schedule allows them to have a couple of real practices. Lou Williams scored 27 points, Nick Young hit five 3-pointers and the Lakers snapped their five-game losing streak with a 108-96 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. Julius Randle scored 16 points while Young and rookie Brandon Ingram added 15 apiece as the Lakers made a prolonged second-half surge to win for just the sixth time in 27 games.
