Short-handed Spurs fall to Ingram, Lakers, 93-81

Rick Carlisle, president of the NBA Coaches Association, said it's a "disgrace" that ESPN published LaVar Ball's comments critical of Lakers coach Luke Walton.

On the morning of the game against the Hawks, Walton and his rookie point guard were forced to answer several questions about whether he still has the locker room and their relationship.

"We're trying to play a certain way and have a certain standard", Walton said.

Second-year forward Brandon Ingram led the charge offensively scoring a game-high 26 points on 11-of-21 shooting from the field along with going 2-of-5 from beyond the arc with three rebounds, three assists, and a steal in 37 minutes of action.

"They were very physical - much more physical than we were", Popovich said. "I thought in that sense, we were pathetic".

Notes The Lakers held the Spurs to an opponent-season-low 15 points in the first quarter. I'm sure most of us love playing for him too. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope played a solid defensive game and contributed down the stretch with 10 points and four rebounds. It will be the third straight game he has missed since he suffered a left shoulder strain against Phoenix on January 5.

This has been a category three weeks in a row now, because Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota continues to deliver in magical ways. Henry's monster game included a 35-yard touchdown run that helped the Titans close the gap and eventually beat the Chiefs .

On a positive note, Danny Green (tightness, left groin) has been upgraded to questionable after missing the last four games.

Veteran Rudy Gay also sat out his seventh straight game with right heel bursitis, leaving the Spurs short-handed in the last stop on a three-game trip down the West Coast.

"Whenever anyone says anything about another individual or the quality of another individual or what they are doing, the first thing to look at is the substance and gravitas of the source", Popovich said. He responded with a calculated takedown of LaVar in which he referred to the Ball family patriarch as "just another fan in the peanut gallery" and said his opinion is "meaningless". The coach talked the star big man out of his feelings after a few dinners and meetings.

"Um, yeah, his dad was talking s- so I took him out early", Walton deadpanned. "I told him, 'I'd be happy to trade you". I'll pack your bags.

The 20-year-old peppered in hockey assists and passes that led to misses on open looks or free throws - a welcome sign for coach Luke Walton. But a right ankle injury suffered by Parker during the San Antonio Spurs' 107-100 win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday puts his status at Staples Center in doubt, while potentially giving the Purple and Gold another reason to think they might net their first three-game winning streak of the 2017-18 season.
