Lonzo Ball calls for unity after Lakers' ugly collapse without LeBron James

LeBron James could do nothing but watch as his Lakers side were beaten by city rivals Los Angeles Clippers in Friday night's derby.

Lakers fans booed their own team off the court after the Clippers produced a 22-0 second-half run to secure the win in the teams' first regular-season encounter - and Harrell encouraged the booing.

"And for us to come back, you know, the way we came back in that fashion I was like, 'You did, you did something special". The 33-year-old has been playing extremely well this season, posting averages of 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game, despite playing a career-low 34.6 minutes each night.

James suffered a strained groin during the Lakers' impressive 127-101 road win over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA's Christmas Day showcase game.

"I take a lot of pride in (staying healthy)", James said after the Warriors game.

"That can't happen. We can lose games, but we'll lose them together".

"It was just fun", said Williams, whose Clippers have won 22 of the past 25 meetings with the Lakers.

"We put the bulldogs on the floor, and the fight was awesome", Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.

Williams, who sizzled off the bench with a 61% shooting clip (11-of-18), shot a ideal 3-of-3 from beyond the arc and 11-of-11 from the the free throw line. "But Lou pretty much has seen every defence that anyone can throw at him". We got to regroup. In his absence, the Lakers had lost to the Sacramento Kings on Thursday night, albeit to a buzzer-beating three-pointer.

Ingram and Ball both picked up four fouls during the third quarter, but neither team made a big move until the Clippers scored the final nine points of the quarter and continued their one-sided run well into the fourth.

Josh Hart scored 12 points for the Lakers before getting ejected with 4:41 left after he was infuriated that Tobias Harris wasn't called for pushing off. Walton also got a technical foul in the exchange.
