With Lakers struggling and LeBron injured, Lakers turned to two native Arkansans to help AD and Westbrook beat Spurs.
Austin logged 30 minutes and scored 10 points with 2 for 4 from the three. And Malik Monk, starting for LeBron, scored 17 with 4 for 10 from the three.
Regarding ex-Hogs in NBA,
Portis is still hurt and hasn’t made his season debut.
Isaiah, after a hot shooting preseason, is in the rotation but has struggled. He finally had his first bucket last night after shooting blanks in the first three games.
Moody’s minutes have declined steadily since the first game. Played only one minute last night.
Gafford is averaging about 13 pts and 8 rebounds and off to a solid start for the Wizards.
Beverley got a standing ovation when he made his season home debut for Minnesota. Had a good game for Minnesota scoring 13. He also got into a pushing confrontation with Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas, when he confronted Jonas at the free throw line as Jonas was getting ready to shoot free throws. So, Patrick is back doing his thing.
