Durant leads Warriors past Lakers for 11th straight win Steve Kerr had been waiting to see rookie Jordan Bell play significant minutes alongside Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. With Green back to full strength, Bell got to shine - and the Golden State Warriors needed every little thing he provided on both ends. Now Kerr just wants to add a healthy Stephen Curry back to the mix and give that lineup a nice long look.

Lakers Film Room has questioned if Ingram should start. What do you think?
Brandon Ingram is the Lakers’ real future superstar. With the hype surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers’ 2017 first-round picks, Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma, we’ve forgotten about last season’s No. 2 pick and Duke standout, Brandon Ingram. There’s reason for this, as he had an unremarkable nine-point, four-rebound rookie season. But now’s the time to invest in Ingram stock, because his rise is already underway. Averaging 16 points per game, Ingram is L.A.’s second-leading scorer and the team’s go-to in crunch time. His 32-point night on 21 shots against the Warriors earlier in the seaso
Lakers! Brandon Ingram showed off how much he has grown against the Warriors Hi this is Tania Ganguli, the Lakers beat writer for the L.A. Times, here with your weekly Lakers newsletter. We took last week off for the Thanksgiving holiday, but we’re back now with lots of catching up to do. Wednesday night the Lakers did what they’ve grown accustomed to doing – they gave the Warriors a dogfight of a game. In each year of the Steve Kerr era, the Warriors have been a far superior team to the Lakers, but in each of those years, the Lakers have also stolen at least one win against the Warriors at Staples Center. That al
Lakers' Brandon Ingram is stronger, louder and more comfortable Sometimes Brandon Ingram would sneak into the gym this summer, even when his coaches wanted their players to rest. He knew he had work to do and Ingram dedicated himself to it all summer long. What resulted was a player who changed dramatically from the shy, rail-thin 19-year-old whom the Lakers drafted second overall in 2016. He’s stronger, louder and more comfortable. “My confidence is sky-high,” Ingram said, uttering a sentence he never could have delivered convincingly a year ago. So much of the focus about the Lakers will be on point
Lakers want Brandon Ingram to have fun and enjoy his time as a young player On Sunday night in Las Vegas, Magic Johnson, a man with great expectations for Brandon Ingram, made an observation to the second-year forward. He hadn’t seen Ingram have fun yet this preseason. And he wasn’t alone in feeling that way. “I think [Lakers coach Luke Walton] and Magic have been trying to tell me just go out there and have fun,” Ingram said. “Just try to go out there and relax a little bit and play my game.” Ingram did change over the summer. His body filled out a little bit. He gained confidence he didn’t have as a roo
Lonzo Ball is dragging Brandon Ingram into the Lakers' Troll Wars The Los Angeles Lakers’ trip to see “Jumanji” in Oklahoma City may have created a monster. For Lonzo Ball, it turned Brandon Ingram into “Slenderman.” For Ingram, it turned him into a bona fide target of the Troll Wars that continue to rage between Zo and fellow rookie Kyle Kuzma. The Crown Prince of Chino Hills kept after BI on Wednesday, first by once again invoking the second-year forward’s creepy meme doppelganger. . . . . .then by clowning Ingram for his equally creepy Rammstein sweater. That’s right: Ingram was repping Ramms
Lonzo Ball, Lakers lose Brandon Ingram, beat Mavericks in OT, 107-101 The Los Angeles Lakers needed something from just about everyone on their roster to beat the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday afternoon. With Brandon Ingram suffering an ankle injury, Lonzo Ball and company managed to pull together enough contributions to score their fourth win in a row and first in their last 15 tries against the Mavs in overtime, 107-101. Ball didn’t bring his shot with him to Texas (4-of-13 from the field, 1-of-7 from three), but found other ways to affect the game, per usual. He grabbed seven rebounds, dished seven assists, s
Lakers News: Brandon Ingram Credits Kobe Bryant For Aiding Growth Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram had the best game of his young career, albeit in a loss to the Golden State Warriors. The sophomore went off for a career-high 32 points to go with five rebounds, three assists and three steals as the young Lakers took the defending champs to overtime and nearly knocked them off. Beyond the fact he set a career high in points, that Ingram’s play came against Kevin Durant made it all the more notable. It was the type of performance the Lakers envisioned from the 20-year-old when they selected him No. 2
Lakers News: Brandon Ingram Admits To Being Hard On Rookie Kyle Kuzma The Los Angeles Lakers have a ton of intriguing young talent heading into the 2017-18 regular season. Much of the focus has been on the likes of Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, and Julius Randle, but one very interesting player is rookie Kyle Kuzma. Kuzma burst onto the scene during the Las Vegas Summer League, winning Championship Game MVP honors while leading the Lakers in scoring. The versatile forward has been working on getting accustomed to the small forward position which may yield him more minutes than his normal power forward spot. With hi
Lakers News: Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram More Closely Identify With No. 24 Kobe Bryant A 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant is remembered in myriad ways by fans. He was immortalized by the franchise this week with the retirement of his No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys. Bryant is the only player to have two numbers retired. The decision to hang both of his jerseys in the rafters was both fitting and easy. Bryant spent the first 10 seasons of his career as No. 8, then another 10 while wearing No. 24. He won championships as each, and an MVP Award in the latter stages of his jersey switch. Considering the amount of year
Carrying weight of Lakers’ future, lithe prospect Brandon Ingram rounding into form Brandon Ingram knows what you want to talk about. Later, Lonzo Ball sat next to Ingram, wrapping a hand around his biceps. A sinewy 6-foot-9 swingman, Ingram has the talent that recalls a young Kevin Durant.
[Ganguli] Brandon Ingram has been diagnosed with a "head contusion," the Lakers said. He is questionable for tomorrow's game.
Lakers News: Lonzo Ball Gives His Thoughts On Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma Scoring Outbursts The Los Angeles Lakers have an impressive array of young, talented players on their roster, and the hope is that they can rebuild their future around them. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy, as evidenced by their difficult loss to the Joel Embiid-led Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. In a game that was billed as a shootout between some of the best young players in the league, in the end, it was Embiid who stole the show. Still, the Lakers didn’t fare too badly, almost stealing a win thanks to their offensive reboundi
Lakers News: Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram Defend Lonzo Ball's Shooting Struggles The shooting struggles of Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball have put him in the type of negative spotlight no player wants to be under. Crowds are laughing at his misses and statistics are flying around about how he’s shooting worse than any player ever to attempt more than 10 shots per game. This type of criticism is old hat for the Lakers’ young players from the last several years, as the attention playing in purple and gold creates has led to a rush to bury their careers when they go through the typical struggles all young playe
Four takeaways from the Lakers' 93-81 win over the San Antonio Spurs Here’s what we learned from the Lakers’ 93-81 win Thursday night against the San Antonio Spurs: The Lakers second-year forward had one of the best games of his career Thursday, scoring 26 points on 21 shot attempts, as he was clearly the most aggressive Laker. Ingram can be a matchup problem because of his length, and he’s a crafty scorer near the basket. His mid-range jumper is being taken with confidence, and as he gets stronger, he should do an even better job of getting to the free-throw line. After games like Thursday’s, it’s eas
Lakers endure Spurs' stress test in 93-81 win It’s one of the great stress tests in professional basketball — stop the San Antonio Spurs for 48 minutes. In their 20th straight season of winning basketball, few, if any, teams in the NBA are more committed to their principles, to a system of winning that’s withstood injuries, aging and anything else in their way. Each possession can require 24 seconds worth of expert defense, the slightest break in concentration resulting in a wide-open shot at the rim or behind the three-point line. And defending the Spurs is a lot like trying to beat
