LeBron James came up clutch in his last game against Denver

LeBron James Lakers Spurs

The victory over the Suns was also our first look at undrafted rookie Johnathan Williams, going the distance with 20 minutes of playing time, to go along with 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 assist.

But it was Stephenson who hit a pair of big-time 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, sparking a Lakers comeback that led to a 121-114 win over previously unbeaten Denver. LeBron also talks about having Kobe Bryant in attendance for Thursday's game and the importance of Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma stepping up with the absence of Rajon Rondo and Brendan Ingram.

Notes The Lakers scored 20 fast-break points, well below their season average, but still a robust number.

"We could feel his anger", Lance Stephenson said afterward about Walton's message at the team's morning meeting on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

Elsewhere, Kawhi Leonard scored a season-high 35 points to help the Toronto Raptors improve to 5-0 with a 112-105 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, equalling their best start in franchise history.

Lance Stephenson came off the bench again and sparked the Lakers' fourth-quarter run by scoring eight of his 12 points, including burying back-to-back 3-pointers during the spurt.

In two games last season, James finished with 25 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds on March 3 before then uncorking 39 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds just four nights later.

But Phoenix committed four turnovers in a 17-2 Los Angeles outburst that put the Lakers up 63-43 on Josh Hart's running dunk with 3:51 left in the first half. In fact, his perimeter game has been his go-to tool during a game's clutch moments. Los Angeles will still be without Rondo, who is serving a three-game suspension, and Ingram, who is suspended for four games, for their roles in a fight with Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets on Saturday.

Nikola Jokic scored 24 points for the Nuggets, who were off to their best start since the 2009-10 season.

"We stuck to the game plan", James said.

"I don't feel like people have been looking at the first three games we played. We felt like their big man couldn't match our intensity, so when I got in there, I was like, 'Man, I'm going to attack the big man'".
