Utah would jump ahead by three early in the second half, as no other Laker other than LeBron James made an assist through almost three full quarters, until James posted nine of his 22 points in the fourth.

James had 22 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, and he seized control of an ugly game with nine points in the fourth quarter of the Lakers' seventh win in eight games, 90-83 over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

Brandon Ingram topscored with 24 and grabbed 6 rebounds to pace the Lakers, who committed 24 turnovers and dished out just 10 assists.

"Sometimes he doesn't realize how great he is". We did a number on them in the half court defensively.

TLP leader Pir Afzal Qadri in a video message corroborated that police was raiding their mosques in order to arrest leaders. The TLP, in turn, had only offered an apology "if it hurt the sentiments of or inconvenienced anyone without reason".

After Ball struggled on the road in Miami and Orlando last week, LeBron and other Lakers told him to start being more aggressive. Mitchell suffered the injury and left the game for good with 9:05 remaining in the second quarter with the Jazz trailing 26-20 at the time. Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell was forced from the game early in the second quarter with a rib contusion and did not return.

"He's our leading scorer and it impacts the game", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. "But I don't want to say the season is young but I do want our guys to understand that there is work to be done, lets get after it and continue to do it and hopefully we will be a better team next month than we are right now and so on and so forth". "Some of it is Utah is a really good defensive team, and some was us playing somewhat selfish basketball".

Alec Burks dropped 17 points and Joe Ingles scored 16 for the Jazz, who lost 5 of their last 6 games to slip to 8-11. "Every game we come out with even more anger".

In 37 minutes for the Lakers, Ingram scored 24 points on 8-14 shooting and 2-3 shooting from 3-point land. Ingram had half of Los Angeles' points in the period. James had only four points in 16 minutes at halftime, and he had only five assists on the first 21 field goals by the Lakers' stagnant offence. Utah held the up-tempo Lakers to 13 fast-break points and just five offensive rebounds in addition to LA's 24 turnovers. The Jazz next play at Sacramento on Sunday.
