Sluggish Lakers put on a dismal display in loss to Raptors

The Raptors look to start their road trip right in the valley of the sun

Lakers and National Basketball Association reporter for ESPN.

The Lakers suffered a 121-107 home loss, despite their opponents being without injured star man Kawhi Leonard. "It's very very hard to make a game out of it when you start like that and expend so much energy trying to get back into it". Serge Ibaka is responsible for 20 points in the first on 8-of-8 shooting, personally outscoring the Lakers, as they shoot just 7-for-21 as a team.

Magic Johnson has said that he won't be making a head coaching change, as Luke Walton will remain on the bench for the regular season.

"I was proud of our guys for continuing to fight, not that it matters", Walton said.

With their win over the Jazz, the Raptors improved 10-1 on the season, which is the best record in the Eastern Conference and tops in the National Basketball Association overall.

Leonard said the injury wasn't serious, although the team listed him as questionable to face the Lakers.

Djokovic, who beat him on the way to the Wimbledon title, is seeking a record-extending fifth Paris Masters title and 73rd title overall.

"He did a little bit of both".

Under normal circumstances, the Lakers could move on and focus on their next game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

"For me and what I've experienced in this league, I've tried to stay even-keeled", James said. James was held to just 18 points, his lowest point total in nine games since joining the Lakers. "You don't look too much into it".

But despite missing four of Toronto's first 11 outings, Leonard continues to lead the team in points per game, rebounds per game, and steals per game, and has vaulted to a +650 bet on the odds to win NBA MVP, well ahead of the +950 odds he sported on opening night.

Once they took control, Toronto never gave it back. "They came out and just hit us right in the mouth", James told reporters. "We got a W, and I'm happier now than scoring a lot of points [in a loss]. But you never let the outside noise get to you - and if you do that, that can cause problems".
