Randle understands intellectually, but emotionally, that’s a little harder to process. “It’s just frustrating, it’s been so long,” he said. “I’ve never sat out that long. To get a little taste now, I have to wait a couple of more months.” Through four games over the past week (the Lakers sat him one game on the second night of a back-to-back), Randle averaged 11.5 points with 4.0 rebounds, while shooting just 39.5% from the floor.

Russell had eight points, six assists, five rebounds, three steals, five turnovers and seven fouls in 26 minutes. The Lakers had a lot of young talent on display in Russell, 2015 all-NBA rookie first team guard Jordan Clarkson (23 points) and forward Julius Randle (11 points, one rebound), who broke his right tibia in the 2014-15 regular-season opener. “We take one step at a time and keep reaching our goals,” Russell said about himself and Towns. “He’s a great player as you saw tonight. His ceiling is high. We’re just going to keep working and keep competing.”

Randle then had graded himself a “C,” believing the lack of training stemmed from a contract delay and rehab surrounding his right foot slowed his progress. But Randle also followed through on the Lakers’ insistence, led by strength and conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco, to cut out sweets in place of grass-fed food. Randle reported those efforts ensured that he lost 15 pounds in fat, resulting in a slimmed down and chiseled frame that can adapt both to Byron Scott’s conditioning-heavy practices and actual games. “The credit goes to my coaches for staying on me and not letting this down time being injured be a step in the wrong direction,” Randle said. “I’m taking advantage of it the most that I could. It’s also me with my drive and will and people supporting me. The credit goes to all of them.”
