LOS ANGELES (AP) The attention was supposed to be about the return of rookie Lonzo Ball. Apparently Julius Randle had his own ideas.
Randle had 18 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists to overshadow Ball's triumphant return to the lineup, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Dallas Mavericks 124-102 on Friday night.
It was Randle's second triple-double this season and No. 5 for his career.
