Los Angeles Lakers claim third straight win against Phoenix Suns

LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma

Devin Booker Re-injures Hamstring, Leaves Game

"How much do I defer and allow some of our young guys to kind of try to figure it out and how much do I try to take over games?"

Kuzma has often been noted for his scoring prowess, but has faced scrutiny over the defensive side of his game. "And we happen to be dressed alike too without even seeing each other before I left for game this morning".

This season Booker is averaging 24.5 points, 7.0 assists, and 3.7 rebounds for the Suns, who with the loss Sunday drop to 4-19, worst in the National Basketball Association and tied with Cleveland for the least amount of wins.

He captioned it with: "The best part about a post game win!" The Suns will play three games this upcoming week with matchups against Sacramento, Portland, and Miami.

Lakers executive Magic Johnson called the report "wrong".

"Brian [Windhorst] got it wrong", Johnson told SiriusXM NBA Radio.

"We have a system that the ball moves around, a lot of pick-and-roll plays". And a major part of that was this two-handed throwdown by LeBron James.

"But, hey, we're the Lakers, people are going to be talking about us".

Walton said that any team with a player of James's calibre will rely on that player at times. He knows when those times are, and he's good at that.

"He's continuing to get better and better, not just offensively but defensively".
