Seven players scored in double figures for the Lakers to arrest a two-game slide, led by reserves Julius Randle and Kyle Kuzma who scored 17 and 16, respectively.

Larry Nance Jr had a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope each added 13 markers for the Lakers (3-4).
