Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram [VIDEO] was happy with his team's offensive display against the Phoenix Suns. The visiting-Lakers edged the Suns in a high-scoring game 132-130. The Lakers made 51.1 percent of their field goal attempts in Arizona. The Purple and Gold also shot 46.2 percent beyond the three-point line. Overall, the team had its way on offense against the Suns.

Ingram, 20, was a key part in the Lakers' win over the Suns. The Duke product scored a career-high 25 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field. The 20-year-old knocked down 3-of-4 of his three-point shots. Coach Luke Walton gave Ingram 37 minutes of play on Friday.

"We got good shots, we got good shots. We were aggressive to the rim. We didn't settle for threes tonight. We got to the rim," Lakers rising star Ingram told John Ireland of Spectrum SportsNet after the game.

The agressiveness of Ball

Ingram thinks that an aggressive #Lonzo Ball is a good thing for the Lakers. Ball, the No. 2 overall pick in this past NBA draft, shined against the Suns. Ball scored 29 points on a 12-of-27 shooting from the field. The UCLA product fell just short of achieving a triple-double performance. The 19-year-old also grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out nine assists in his 37 minutes of action.

Lakers point guard Ball bounced back in style after a quiet opener. Ball scored just five points on six taken shots against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. The 19-year-old enjoys putting his teammates in a good position to score as he is known as a pass-first player.

"I think him being more aggressive for our team makes our team better. I think when he needs it he will do it. But, of course, he is a pass-first kinda guy. So, he kinda shies away from scoring the ball a lot," Ingram said of Ball, as revealed on Spectrum SportsNet.

Brewer's presence helps

Ingram also praised veteran guard #Corey Brewer after the game. Brewer, 31, made his presence felt on the floor against the floor. The guard scored just five points, but led the young Lakers team on the defensive end and provided a veteran leadership. Brewer guarded Suns rising star Devin Booker on Friday. Booker scored 25 points on a 9-of-19 shooting from the field.

"Brewer did a great job on Dev Booker tonight -- on the offensive end and defensive end," Ingram said, as revealed on Spectrum SportsNet. "He just brings that veteran leadership. He has won a championship in this league. So, everybody wants to follow him on the floor." #Brandon Ingram
