After the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss to the Chicago Bulls (115-110) on Sunday night, the Lakers veteran forward Trevor Ariza said that for the most part, “I felt pretty good” physically in his first game back after weeks of rehabilitation on his ankle. The speed of the game takes a minute to catch up to, but he clearly knows where to be and when.

“I felt pretty good. … Unfortunately, we didn’t win. But I felt like we got better today.”
