Magic Johnson reportedly 'admonished' Luke Walton over slow start in meeting

LeBron James Luke Walton

He says he is focused on blocking out the noise and winning as many games as possible in his first season in Los Angeles.

"We would like to get a couple lineups that are comfortable and know they're going in together but that hasn't been our reality so far this season", Walton acknowledged.

LeBron James' wishes have plenty of power in Los Angeles.

James, however, did make some big shots down the stretch to seal the win.

Lakers president Magic Johnson is displeased with his team's underwhelming start, reportedly admonishing head coach Luke Walton this week, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin.

"We know where we're going and we know what it takes to get there. A really good win for us". They almost blew a 19-point lead to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday at home.

"We have been saying since the beginning that we need to be patient", Walton said. "We were able to get stops in the fourth quarter and we were getting some momentum on offense".

Dallas trimmed the margin to 66-59 by halftime.

But after the Lakers dropped to 2-5 following losses in winnable games at San Antonio and Minnesota, Johnson met with Walton. Unsurprisingly, the Lakers have struggled to win games this season despite being competitive in all of them.

James is getting his numbers, averaging 27.8 points, 8.0 assists and 8.6 rebounds per contest through October 31.

This is something Walton has spoken about in the past and having one of James and Rondo on the floor at all times undoubtedly helps the Lakers as a whole. What can I do to be the best team we can be?

Evan Turner and Zach Collins combined to score 21 points of the bench. The Mavericks were 14 of 19 from the field in the second quarter.

Klay Thompson scored 18 points with one three-pointer for the Warriors two days after setting an National Basketball Association record with 14 three pointers in a win over the Chicago Bulls.

Curry had seven three-pointers and nine assists, Kevin Durant added 24 points and eight assists, and Draymond Green delivered 16 points, 15 rebounds as the Warriors won their sixth straight. The last Lakers player to accomplish that was Pau Gasol on January 20, 2014, at Chicago.
