Lakers' Brandon Ingram (ankle) limited to 13 minutes on Saturday, considered day-to-day

Lonzo Ball Lakers lose Brandon Ingram beat Mavericks in OT 107-101

The Lakers now have a 14-27 record at the season's midseason mark, and are on pace to win only two more games than the team did in its previous campaign.

DALLAS - Julius Randle's rebound and late putback sealed an overtime victory for Los Angeles against Dallas. The Spurs are now second in the Western Conference; the loss gives them a 10-13 road record. Green missed his fifth consecutive game with a groin strain. Throughout the night, he was matched to defend Gasol, an integral member of the franchise's last two championships. Lonzo has also averaged 42.9 percent from the floor, a new high considering he's only shot 34.8 percent before the Spurs game.

But on Thursday night, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich shared what might be the strongest take on the situation yet. "And it's a long road ahead, but we've just got to continue taking it one game at a time". The reliable forward Brandon Ingram landed nine points.

Just look at how long he is. Two-time National Basketball Association champion Gasol made clever passes which resulted in points. Aldridge scored eight points and Ingram secured nine in the period. The coach would eventually explain that the random drops in minutes had to do with the player's play and a standard the coach expected, i.e. there was nothing random about the minute fluctuations.

San Antonio made a comeback briefly after halftime by reducing their deficit to three points.

After L.A. trimmed the lead to three after the third, Dallas opened the final quarter on a 7-0 run to stretch its advantage to double digits. The Lakers jumped out to a five-point lead, but the Spurs fought back. Los Angeles would take the lead back yet again on a three from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

The Lakers, who know something about stars, had Kobe Bryant, the brashest of the brash, who asked Coach Del Harris as an 18-year-old rookie why they couldn't run post-ups for him, leaving Delmer to explain they had Shaquille O'Neal for that.

"Just reading the defense, trying to be better off of instincts", Ingram said.

Willie Reed added 14 points and 13 rebounds starting in place of DeAndre Jordan, who has a sprained left ankle. Lopez put forth a powerful defensive effort with four steals and two blocks in the contest. The Lakers had him in on November 29, at which time LaVar said he'd come to them with any complaints.

OG Anunoby had 17 points and Serge Ibaka 14 for the Raptors, who rallied from a 19-point deficit through three quarters to make it a one-point game in the fourth.
