It took nearly three weeks and a matchup with the league’s worst to win again.After nine straight losses, however, the circumstances didn’t feel all that important, as the Lakers finally found their offensive mojo and blew out the Atlanta Hawks 132-113 to snap a nine-game losing streak.Brandon Ingram led the Lakers (12-27) with 20 points points. On the day his father blasted coach Luke Walton for having lost the faith of Lakers players, Lonzo Ball scored 13 points while adding 10 rebounds and six assists.Jordan Clarkson led the Lakers bench with 18 points, while three other reserves chipped in at least 12 points.

He walked through the locker room before the game with a large ice pack strapped to his shoulder, but appeared to be unaffected during the gameHe knocked down three 3-pointers, albeit on nine attempts.When Ball finally checked out with 2:53 left in the fourth quarter, along with Kyle Kuzma, Larry Nance Jr. and Julius Randle, the group was treated to a standing ovation.Two nights earlier, the same players were booed in a dispiriting loss to the Charlotte Hornets.Despite much sideshow activity throughout the day, with Walton and Lonzo Ball responding to comments made by LaVar from Lithuania, the game itself played out with little drama. After falling behind by eight points early in the game, the Lakers overwhelmed the Hawks in the second period, outscoring Atlanta 37-21. Their lead grew to as many as 26 points and the Lakers, for whom nothing has come easily in recent weeks, cruised.Even the Lakers most damning demon, their free throw shooting, took a night off. The Lakers knocked down 20-of-25 shots from the foul line, a celebration-worthy 80 percent.Since their last victory, the course of the Lakers season has altered dramatically. After rarely getting blown out in the first two months of the season, over the course of their losing streak it became the norm.Six of their nine losses were by double figures, hitting a low-point on Wednesday, when Oklahoma City came to town and thumped the Lakers by 37 points.They fell to the bottom of the Western Conference and before Friday had the league’s worst record – ahead only of the Hawks, who are now 10-28.The Lakers avoided matching the longest losing streak in franchise history. They lost 10 straight both in 1993-94 and in 2015-16, during Kobe Bryant’s final season.Dennis Schroder led the Hawks with 27 points, but did most of his damage in the first half, when he scored 18 points. Former Laker Kent Bazemore added 14 points.
