LeBron James’ season-low 13 in blowout caps Lakers’ eventful week

It’s a long season. … But it’s just a process,” said Ball, who had 10 points and four assists against the Wizards.One surprising aspect of Sunday was that the Lakers had not previously been troubled by playing on consecutive days this season: They entered this one with a 5-1 record in the second game of back-to-back sets.Perhaps that’s why Walton sounded so optimistic about where his team that’s fourth in the West stood — and where it was headed — before tipping off against the Wizards.“Well, we’re moving in the right direction. We have been for a while. The more we can get on road trips together, get practice time together, go through adversity together, the stronger our team’s going get,” the coach said during his pregame session with the media. “As of right now, I’m very happy where we’re at. But we’ve still got a long way to go.”The way his team played later in the evening showed just how accurate that final sentence was.
