Following three straight defeats, the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. Ivica Zubac was among the main contributors with 24 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks in 35 minutes. “We needed to win this game. We took the lead and didn’t let them come back” he said after the NBA Regular Season match.

The 21-year-old Croatian center notched his fourth 2018-19 double-double and his fifth straight double-digit scoring performance, not to mention his 16-boards career-high. “I was boxing out my guy. My teammates were boxing out there guys. Their guards couldn’t fly in and disrupt the boards, so I just had to go and get it” he explained.
