Kyle Kuzma had 23 points and eight rebounds to lead the Los Angeles Lakers past the visiting Phoenix Suns 120-96 yesterday. He has averaged 24.5 points and seven assists in 18 appearances in 2018-19.

Pacific division leaders the Los Angeles Clippers lost late, with a Dorian Finney-Smith tip shot putting the Dallas Mavericks ahead with 34.3 seconds left.

Booker scored six points on 3-of-8 shooting and dished out two assists in 17 minutes on the court against the Lakers.

The Lakers are 14-9 and fifth in the Western Conference. They capped the month by defeating the visiting Dallas Mavericks 114-103 on Friday night.

The Lakers seem to have found an identity that traces back to the defensive end of the floor.

The Suns listed Booker as questionable to return.

The Lakers lead the Suns 95-74 after three quarters.

In recent games, he seems to have answered.

"It never goes to plan, but I like the progress we've made, where we're at as a team right now compared to where we were to start the season", he said.

Ayton, who leads National Basketball Association rookies with 12 double-doubles, will likely spend time guarding Lakers backup center Tyson Chandler, who played the past three seasons with the Suns and the first seven games of this season before he was bought out and signed with the Lakers.
