Lonzo Ball not upset about sitting out 4th quarter

Brook Lopez and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 15 apiece for the Lakers, who salvaged the finale of a four-game road trip and won in Phoenix for the second time this season.
Clarkson has cherished his role as a sixth man of the team, now under a more stable situation than last year's plug-and-play style under Walton.
Ball, who became the youngest player in National Basketball Association history on Saturday to have a triple-double in Milwaukee, was 3-of-10 shooting with seven points, five assists and four turnovers in 28 minutes. "(Clarkson) was hot. I would have rolled with him too".
While the Los Angeles Lakers rookie shot it well in college, connecting on 41.2 percent of his three balls on more than five attempts per game, his shooting numbers in the pros are equally as ugly as the jump shot itself-he only recently got his field goal percentage from the field above 30 percent, at 31.3. My teammates got it done in the fourth and we had to at least get one on this road trip. Surprisingly, it was Clarkson at point guard to finish the game instead of Ball. "And I thought we did a great number defensively as well".
"I thought the 3-pointers were the difference in the game", Phoenix interim coach Jay Triano said. "I thought our defense was decent enough to keep us in the game, but when they make 14 3s and you make seven, it's going to be a tough hill".

The markets turned negative after government data showed a rise in both consumer and wholesale inflation, according to Mint . Weakness rubbed off on broader markets, with mid-cap and small-cap indices falling by up to 0.22 per cent.
The Suns were 7 of 26 from 3-point range, compared with 14 of 33 for the Lakers. Phoenix, loser of six of its last seven, never got closer than six after that and Clarkson's 3 made it 98-88 with 2:43 to go. After losing three straight games to Eastern Conference teams, the Lakers did bounce back. Clarkson on the other hand scored five points as the Lakers closed the third with a 9-4 run, taking a one-point lead into the fourth.
The second-year head coach added that his choice was made out of feel, one which proved him right as his Lakers got a much-needed 100-93 win over the Suns.
The points are a new season-high for Booker, who now has six 30-plus scoring performances in 15 games this season.
The Lakers know what it drafted; they've seen Ball make baskets before.
