The Lakers now have six wins and two losses, while their city rivals slipped to a five-and-two record after Patty Mills scored 27 points off the bench to help the Spurs snap a four-game losing streak.

The Utah Jazz are now four-and-three after the Brooklyn Nets cruised to a wire-to-wire 130-96 victory in New York.
