Lonzo Ball Had No Interest In Backing Teammates During Lakers-Suns Fight

The Lakers have dropped five of six games since opening the season 5-5, and they rank last in the National Basketball Association in both turnovers and three-point shooting. Ulis, Caldwell-Pope and Suns rookie Josh Jackson were given technical fouls following the fracas.

The Suns (6-11) will play host to the Bulls (3-10) in the first of two meetings between the teams in 10 days.

"We know that it's a long season", Walton said before the game, "and there's ups and downs throughout that season". It was the third time a minor donnybrook broke out in a game between the two teams this season. He's now the Los Angeles Lakers beat writer for Sports Out West. He plays 32 minutes per game, and in 16 games he had one game with 0 (zero) points, one game with 2 points, one game with 3 points (so let's wait for the 1-point game?), and only four double-digit points.

Three of Caldwell-Pope's Lakers teammates who were on the floor rushed over to separate the players, but Lonzo Ball took one look at the developing scuffle and continued his stroll over toward the bench. "I ain't trying to get no tech".

The Phoenix Suns got embarrassed by the Houston Rockets on national television Thursday night. "I think we're going to carry it on to the next game", Dunn told reporters.

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

Suns: Big man Dragan Bender celebrated his 20th birthday with 10 points and five rebounds.

It was on display December 20, when Devin Booker fouled Corey Brewer on a breakaway dunk and Larry Nance Jr. arrived to wallop Booker with a shoulder.

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. "Seems like some of our guys really stepped up and made tough shots when they had to, or got to the free throw line". Kuzma also notched a double-double with 10 rebounds.

Bulls rookie forward Lauri Markkanen, who declared for the NBA Draft after one year at the University of Arizona, is averaging 14.8 points and 7.6 rebounds a game.

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.
