Lonzo Ball said he's still trying to get his wind and conditioning back after what was just his third game since the end of last March.

Lonzo Ball said the two dunks at the start of the game by LeBron James were two of the best plays he's ever seen.

When asked what he thought about LeBron James' two thunderous tomahawk jams to start the game, Josh Hart said, "He's the best player in the world and he showed that."

Josh Hart hit the first Lakers 3-pointer of the season late in the third quarter. The Lakers opened the game missing their first 15 attempts from behind the arc. Perimeter shooting could be problematic for the Lakers this season although the front office is banking on the likes of Hart, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Kyle Kuzma to improve their shooting this season.

A concern heading into the season was whether the Lakers had enough perimeter shooting around LeBron James. In the first half, the Lakers opened the season going 0-for-12 from behind the arc. Brandon Ingram and Lance Stephenson were both 0-for-3 from 3-point range. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, whom the Lakers are hoping will be one of their best shooters this season, made two free throws but was 0-for-0 from the floor in the half.

Lonzo Ball checked into the game for the first time with 3:22 left in the first quarter with LeBron James and Rajon Rondo taking their first break. Ball joined Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and JaVale McGee. Luke Walton got to see how this Lakers unit would do without either James or Rondo on the floor.

First Laker off the bench for the season is Kyle Kuzma, who scored right away from a terrific bounce pass from Rajon Rondo. Kuzma subbed in for JaVale McGee and immediately had to defend Jusuf Nurkic inside as well.
