Both James and Lance Stephenson came close to notching triple-doubles and seven Lakers scored in double-figures as they defeated the Phoenix Suns, 131-113, to notch their first win of the season.

James made an outstanding behind the back dribble to get to the basket but would get caught in the air. That was no problem, however, as James passed the ball off the backboard to himself and finish the layup. J

The game also saw the first start of the season for Josh Hart who replaced Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Hart had another strong outing with 15 points while knocking down 4-of-6 from three-point range. Caldwell-Pope also had his best outing with 14 points.
