The LA Lakers starters keep showing they are the best part of the team the role players need to step up. The weakest part of the team continues to be coach Darvin Ham and the wing Taurean Prince who has been disappointing most of the campaign.

After dominating most of the first three quarters, the San Antonio Spurs have been able to cut a lot of the distance because the Lakers role players aren't on the same level as the starters, again.

Anthony Davis leads the team with 28 points, Rui Hachimura has 17 points, LeBron has 18, D'Lo 19, and Austin Reaves has 10. But the team's role players haven't been really helpful with Prince scoring 2 points, the same with Hayes and Christie having scored only one single point in the game so far.

Spencer Dinwiddie has been disappointing as he hasn't scored a single point in what was set to be a blowout win but is quickly becoming a tough game with Victor Wembanyama at the lead for San Antonio.

LeBron James is back and the Lakers have the lead vs. the Spurs

After 26 minutes of playtime for the purple and gold against San Antonio, LeBron James has scored 18 points, 8/14 FG, 6 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal, and +12 in the plus/ minus.
