Phoenix was up by as many as 32 points at one point, costretto 16 Lakers turnovers and eventually dropped Los Angeles to 0-2.

While James finished with 25 points in the loss, it was a rough night for the Lakers all around. The game saw Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard get into an altercation with each other while Rajon Rondo got into it with a fan on the sidelines.
