The Orlando Magic (9-10) beat the visiting Lakers 130-117 on November 17 to end their season-long four-game winning streak.

The Lakers (10-7) are fourth in the National Basketball Association in points per game (116.2) and appear to be growing more comfortable on both ends of the floor. This is what they, the front office and James signed up for. "We haven't taken care of the ball the last two games". Two of his three games with at least 30 points this season have come against the Lakers. Lance Stephenson had 13 of the Lakers' 21 points off the bench, but Los Angeles was outscored there by 21 points.

Utah's 83 points were the second-lowest scoring output of the season.

The Lakers were guilty of a season-high 24 turnovers and although only 10 of those resulted in assists, James warned they can ill afford to be so sloppy.

The Jazz (8-10) have lost four of their past five games and allowed at least 113 points in all four losses.

On the season, he is only making 67 percent of his attempts from the charity stripe, which is very poor.

Emmanuel Mudiay added 17 points, and Trey Burke had 15 to help the Knicks win their third straight in former Grizzles coach David Fizdale's return.

"He missed a couple of them, that's absolutely fine".

The Lakers did not score again and suffered a disappointing loss which for the moment stalls their momentum. 'And then once the tip-ball gets going, it'll be time to go to work. But no one other than James played at a high level consistently. Kyle Kuzma chipped in 21 points. James is going to do his part, and most nights that will be enough.

So, it appears that Ingram knows that the Lakers have to move away from the ball better.

Ingram's campaign was interrupted by a four-game suspension levied against him for his part in the ugly Rockets-Lakers brawl in the season's opening week. He rarely passes, and every time he touches the ball the movement stops and everyone watches him dribble and dribble until he forces up a shot.

After a 2-of-9 shooting night, Donovan Mitchell exited the game early in the second quarter. The Philadelphia star tallied 34 points and 12 rebounds in the victory. Ball has raised his field goal percentage and 3-point percentage, and James said after a win over the Jazz on Friday that Ball is starting to realize "how good he is" with the ball in his hands. He barely scored all week and did not score at all against the Magic.

"It's tough for teams to guard us on pick-and-rolls because (Vucevic) can shoot so well", Augustin said after beating the Lakers.

Their shaky interior defense, the major issue during their sluggish start, has been shored up by the acquisition of veteran center Tyson Chandler to provide back up to starter Javale McGee. "We think we have a game, we're up 18 and we give in, and we find a way to win it. ..." According to ESPN Stats & Information research, the last time the Lakers led by double-digits after the first quarter and lost was February 11, 2014, against the Jazz - a game that turned into a 96-79 drubbing.

James is also struggling from the free throw line.
