LeBron James Hit Diddy's Bday Party After Lakers Loss

The Lakers suffered a 121-107 home loss, despite their opponents being without injured star man Kawhi Leonard. Serge Ibaka is responsible for 20 points in the first on 8-of-8 shooting, personally outscoring the Lakers, as they shoot just 7-for-21 as a team.

Leonard, who left the Raptors' game against the Phoenix Suns in the fourth quarter on Friday night and didn't play on Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers, reportedly tested his ankle with a brief appearance in the shootaround but was ruled out with persistent left ankle soreness about 90 minutes before tipoff.

"You always just stay even-keel when you come in for games", James said.

Lakers president Magic Johnson met with Walton last Tuesday about the team's slow start, but Johnson told the Los Angeles Times the discussion had nothing to do with Walton's job security and he'll finish the season as the team's coach "unless something drastic happens, which it won't". He lost his starting job 13 games into the season last year thanks to an injury and the subsequent breakout of OG Anunoby but had seemingly left those struggles behind early this year. You don't put too much into it. "But you never let the outside noise get to you and if you do that, that can cause you problems".

James added: "Second, third and fourth [quarter] we played Lakers basketball". "We made mistakes on defense and got down, and I think when you're passive collectively, not communicating with each other, that results in breakdowns".

"There are a lot of things we could have done better". "At the point of attack we allowed them to get where they wanted to go, however they wanted to go to start the game. When you get into a comfort zone early like that, shots are going to fall".

Under normal circumstances, the Lakers could move on and focus on their next game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
