"I feel like I have a great relationship with management, yes", said Walton, who spoke with general manager Rob Pelinka after practice and before the Lakers flew to Portland.

By doing this, Johnson is contradicting what he said in the offseason when he made it clear Walton would "have time" to work things out with the team's younger players, which is already a bad enough look. "We want to be as good a team as we can be and win ballgames".

"What we discuss in our meetings is between us, but. we have been saying since the beginning, we're going to be patient", Walton said. We've had a couple of setbacks with some suspensions. The Lakers then had to survive a late-game scare from the Mavericks on Halloween as Dallas almost overcame a 19-point deficit. "All that matters is what goes on in this locker room both home and away". I can coach them with my eyes closed. When you're not making shots that means you've got to go to the other end and you've got to be really sharp.

And when I say defensively I don't just mean my defenders, I mean as a team. "I think we were much better in the second half". And there was one element of United's game that was labelled "pathetic" but viewers when they saw it on television.

"The first and third quarters defensively we were pretty good and then we had two very bad quarters". "When you're not shooting the ball, you can't let that impact what you do on the defensive end". We haven't had a lot of success against this franchise here in a long time or against this team period going a long way.

Damian Lillard finished with 30 points on 10-of-23 shooting from the field and 2-of-9 shooting from three, four rebounds, four assists and three steals in 36 minutes. "That's not always my philosophy but with this team I'd like to keep one of those guys out there as much as possible".

CJ McCollum also finished with 30 points, though he also had a hard time hitting from outside, going 2-of-8 from three.

Evan Turner and Zach Collins combined to score 21 points of the bench. McGee also had five blocked shots, making it his first game with at least 15 points, 15 rebounds and five blocks since January 14, 2012, with Washington.

The Blazers went on a 22-8 run, cutting the Lakers' lead to six points with 3:34 left after a layup by Jusuf Nurkic. Kyle Kuzma and JaVale McGee each added 12 points.

James described snapping the 16-game losing streak to Portland as the Lakers getting "over the hump".
