LeBron James had 34 points, seven assists and six rebounds, while Kevin Love had a double-double of 21 points and 15 rebounds.
D'Angelo Russell led the Lakers with 40 points.

Jusuf Nurkic provided him with all the support he needed, with a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds.
SPURS EASE TO WIN
Pau Gasol had 22 points and nine rebounds off the bench in the Spurs' win.
