But Ball's comments - most recently claiming that Walton has lost the Lakers - have reverberated through National Basketball Association circles and drawn the ire of coaches. "Luke [Walton] has been schooled in this game from the time he was a little kid".

"I'm not meeting with their announcing crew before the game, I'm not doing the in-game interview", Van Gundy said. Though it's a modest number, the three victories mark the longest winning streak of the Lakers' tumultuous season. "Whether guys are far back or too close (so) I can drive around them, I'm just trying to read the defense and make the best play". "I gotta believe that when I shoot it's going to go in".

"We're getting back to our principles on the defensive end", Randle said.

"We responded like a team that has failed a lot and kind of got sick of it because we were at that same point again". The Spurs have fallen off the pace recently as their injury toll continues to grow but they're still more than good enough to get the win with the players they have left.

The Lakers have often asked Randle to learn how to control his play and his movement. The Kings were within one point of the Lakers. "I like what Magic said". Ball missed six games with a shoulder sprain he suffered on December 23. "We call them stingers".
