Lakers get Lonzo Ball back, but Bobcats hand them 9th straight loss

07 January 2018, 08:58 | Melissa Porter

"I should be out there", Ball said of playing against the Rockets.

On Friday night, the Los Angeles Lakers hit a new a low when they lost in blowout fashion to the Charlotte Hornets, a team that entered the night with a 4-13 road record and a 14-23 record overall.

In addition to picking up his first career technical foul, Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball had one of Los Angeles' four turnovers in the last four minutes of the game after charging into Denver Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray. They've gone from looking like a scrappy team to a night off at this point in the season and they won't be keeping their draft pick this summer. He's too young. He's too young.

LaVar, speaking from a Lithuanian resort, also called out Walton at length, saying that the Lakers "don't want to play for" the 37-year-old coach.

Ball also claims that even if the Lakers were to sign LeBron James or Paul George in the off-season, the team would not be able to compete for a championship under Walton's guidance.

"There's some frustration, but there's frustration on every team unless you win every game".

Ball was up at 5 a.m. local time in Birstonas, Lithuania, on Saturday to watch Lonzo play in his first game back with the Lakers since suffering a sprained shoulder on December 23. If he's ready to play, let him play.

But the biggest issue was defensively, where the Hornets ran wild for three quarters behind Kemba Walker (19 points, four steals), Marvin Williams (16 points) and Dwight Howard (15 points, 10 rebounds).

The Lakers are fast running out of excuses for their midseason collapse after Lonzo Ball was welcomed back to the lineup with a 108-94 blowout loss to the Charlotte Hornets. "Don't try and monitor no minutes, put on restrictions".

"No, I coach as if it's not", Walton said. After Houston, the Lakers travel to play at Philadelphia, Charlotte, New York and Cleveland. Yet, LaVar says LeBron is coming to play with his son.

"LeBron's coming to L.A".

Walton: "Julius has shown us how great he can be, and I believe in Julius and I continue to challenge him". "It slowly felt like we started to lose that, and we got more concerned with the offensive end than the defensive end". "Go to the Lakers and win a championship, then you're better than Jordan". Give him LeBron and Gelo [LiAngelo Ball].

"You can't give my son the best player in the league, and don't expect them not to win", Ball said to Goodman. You got a 2 and a 3.
