The Lakers didn’t like what they heard this week coming from the Washington Wizards.
With the Lakers up by three, John Wall had the ball with Lonzo Ball on him.
The Lakers improved to 2-2, with wins over Washington and Phoenix.
He went 0 for 5 in the fourth period and one for five in overtime, with the Lakers defending him mostly by committee.
Brandon Ingram led the Lakers with 19 points, 11 of them in the fourth quarter, and Larry Nance Jr. added 18, 14 of them in the first half.
He played most of the fourth quarter and all of overtime, making a critical block on Wall in overtime and scoring the Lakers’ final points on an uncontested dunk.
The Lakers led throughout the first period, by as many as eight points, but Washington took a seven-point lead in the second and a 10-point lead in the third.
The run included a three-pointer from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on a tip-out from Ingram to bring the Lakers within two, and a midrange jumper by Ingram to tie the score at 85.
Randle isn’t known as a shooter, but he sank a three-pointer to bring the Lakers within one point.
