Lakers teammate talked to Lonzo Ball about walking away from fight

"It's the NBA. People ain't really going to fight".

The Purple and Gold have lost five of their last six games after starting the season an encouraging 5-5, and they now rank 28th in the National Basketball Association with an offensive rating of 97.7. "You know we wanted to come out tonight and prove that we should have won both of those games and win the next matchup as well".

"We understand that those were two games that we definitely should have had, definitely should have won", Ulis said. Ball is averaging 4.5 points on 4-of-19 shooting over the past two games but Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton said he isn't moving the No. 2 overall pick to the bench for the home tilt against Phoenix.

Caldwell-Pope, Ulis and Suns rookie Josh Jackson, who came rushing in, all received technical fouls. "I think we did that".

So far, Lonzo Ball has 8.8 points, 6.8 assists and 6.6 rebounds per game, but with 30.8% FG and embarrassing 22.7% from the downtown.

The Phoenix Suns weren't about to go down for the third time without a fight against the Los Angeles Lakers. Phoenix has dropped seven of its last eight games and its defense was non-existent while giving up 90 first-half points in Thursday's 142-116 loss to the Houston Rockets.

Ball, who made waves on Friday by sporting a tight new haircut, finished with six points, six rebounds and six assists. Like the Lakers, the Suns are a rebuilding team, and they will likely be in for a rough season after trading away one of their best players in Eric Bledsoe.

Suns: Host the Chicago Bulls on Sunday. While Devin Booker is an awesome talent, there isn't much else around him right now. Booker nailed two 3-pointers in the final 14 seconds, with Ball's first field goal on a layup sandwiched between them.
