LOS ANGELES -- Julius Randle refused to back down from Tyson Chandler, and both big men got technical fouls for trash talking. Moments later, the crowd rose to its feet when Randle got the ball against Chandler on the perimeter in the closing minutes.Instead of forcing a confrontation, Randle fed Jordan Clarkson for a decisive 3-pointer.The Los Angeles Lakers are young and headstrong, but theyre learning all the time.And for just the second time in three years, theyre a winning team.Nick Young scored 22 points, Clarkson added 18 and the Lakers moved above .500 with their third straight victory, 119-108 over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night.Two days after their stunning upset of Golden State, the Lakers (4-3) held off the Suns down the stretch despite Devin Bookers career-high 39 points. Randle also scored 18 for the Lakers and assisted on that 3 by Clarkson with 1:27 left to seal it.The fact he did what he did was such a winning play on his part, Los Angeles coach Luke Walton said. Unselfish. Its everything we want. Its him using his brain, him being competitive, him fighting for the team.After three seasons of gradually increasing misery, the Lakers are young, fun and improving. Theyre also unbeaten at home, winning three straight games at Staples Center for the first time since April 2013.Were doing things the right way, and were starting to see some success, Randle said. We easily could have given up the lead, but we kept fighting. ... Thats just my game. I dont back down from anybody. Im not afraid of nobody.Other than its season-opening victory last month, Los Angeles hadnt had a winning record since the franchise was 10-9 on Dec. 6, 2013. The three worst seasons in team history followed, but Waltons new Lakers are already injecting optimism into their huge fan base with up-tempo excitement and a quick start to the season.Booker scored 29 in the second half while setting a career high for the second straight game. T.J. Warren had 22 points and Eric Bledsoe added 19 for Phoenix, which started slowly two days after a road game in New Orleans.Theyre a good team in transition, and we knew that coming in, said Booker, who also had seven assists. We had some mental breakdowns, and they took advantage of it.BOOK MAKINGBooker followed up his 38-point game against the Pelicans on Friday with another beauty. After missing nine of his 12 first-half shots, the 20-year-old heated up with a series of high-difficulty buckets while Phoenix trimmed the Lakers lead.Doesnt matter, Booker said. Its another game, especially if we lose. If we get a win, Im more excited about it. Everybody looks good when you win, and thats what were trying to do. Scoring as many points as you want and not making the playoffs isnt a good look.Booker outscored DAngelo Russell, his fellow second-year NBA guard, but Russell had 11 points -- eight in the fourth quarter -- and six assists.UNCLE P DELIVERSYoungs strong game included a four-point play with 4:19 left. Even the Suns have taken notice of the veteran guard, whose Lakers career appeared to be over last summer. We knew Nick has been playing well all season, Phoenix coach Earl Watson said. Hes done a really good job turning his game around.NANCE INJUREDLakers F Larry Nance Jr. has a concussion after a first-quarter tumble. Nance was undercut by P.J. Tucker while they scrambled for a loose ball near midcourt. Nance didnt return, and he must miss Tuesdays game against Dallas as well, according to the NBAs concussion protocol. Nance is a valuable reserve in his second NBA season, averaging 8.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.TIP-INSLos Angeles bench outscored the Suns reserves 47-9. ... Timofey Mozgov added 14 points and eight rebounds for the Lakers. ... Lakers fan Travis Milne hit a half-court shot before the fourth quarter to win $35,000. Several Lakers high-fived Milne, who pointed at his forearm in an imitation of Russells famed Ice In My Veins celebration of big shots. Russell didnt see the homage, but was visibly pleased to hear about it after the game.UP NEXTSuns: At Portland on Tuesday.Lakers: Host Dallas on Tuesday. Nike Air Max 2017 .

Josh Hodgson has lashed Australian-born blow-ins attempting to switch rugby league allegiances to England, calling on coach Wayne Bennett to draw a line in the sand.The Canberra and England hooker has joined Test teammate George Burgess in speaking out against moves by new national coach Bennett to poach the likes of Brett and Josh Morris and Trent Hodkinson.A host of Australian players including the Morris twins, Hodkinson and Manly prop Darcy Lussick have been approached about switching allegiances to England ahead of the Four Nations Test series in October.While none have confirmed their intentions to swap nations, Josh Morris this week fuelled rumours he was about to make the jump when he refused to answer questions on the subject.The Morris brothers have both represented NSW and Australia and Hodkinson played six games for the Blues. However, all qualify for England under eligibillity rules because they have either English parents or grandparents.ddddddddddddHodgson said he wouldnt like to see anyone don the red and white jumper unless they were fully committed and anyone attempting a switch because they couldnt get a call up for another country should be turned away.Ive had a fair think about this `cause Ive got a son and hes born in Australia and he may never go to England to live there the rest of his life, Hodgson said.But if he grew up and said he wanted to represent England, and he was proud to be English because his mum and dad are English, then I dont see what the issue would be.But in terms of someone who hasnt got much English background and theyre doing it because they cant make another squad, I just wont be a fan of that.
