Lakers

NBA

The Lakers are playing a lot harder and with much more energy and hustle than last night's opener as evidenced by Larry Nance diving on the floor for a 50-50 ball and tapping it to Brook Lopez for a dunk. It won't always look like this because they won't always play the defenseless Suns but this is what the Lakers want to be this season — run, share the ball, create breaks off defense, hustle and display the potential of Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram. They're doing all of that tonight.
