LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers face the Phoenix Suns on Sunday

After some signs of life from the Phoenix Suns in the second half, the Los Angeles Lakers extended their lead and left their opponents little hope.

He is averaging 24.5 points and 7 assists per game. Booker also missed three games in October after straining the very same hamstring in the Suns' fourth game of the season. Booker had 23 points, seven assists and seven rebounds while James had 19 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds. They capped the month by defeating the visiting Dallas Mavericks 114-103 on Friday night. "We're at our best when we're running and gunning and just pushing the ball ahead, just making layups, our shooters shooting 3s and just feeling comfortable on the floor".

Asked why he has been putting such an emphasis of defense, Kuzma said: "Just because I know that I can do it".

Booker did not speak to reporters after the Suns' 120-96 loss in Los Angeles, according to the Athletic.

The Lakers turned the game around by outscoring the Suns 40-15 in the second quarter.

In recent games, he seems to have answered.

The Suns opened up an early 17-point lead in the first quarter, but the Lakers rallied to make short work of the the side with the lowest record in the National Basketball Association at 4-19.

"It actually started before that, we'd been talking when I was in Cleveland, he wanted to pick my brain, talk about how he could get better".
