Lonzo Ball scored 17 points Tuesday on 6-of-13 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers fell to the New York Knicks 113-109 in overtime. Ball grabbed eight rebounds and dished out six assists, tallying a plus-minus of -11 in his 39:31 of playing time. He added one block and two steals. Ball went 3 of 6 from behind the arc.
Ball went high to slam down a lob pass from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, nailed a 3-pointer, drove for a layup, and then fed Brook Lopez for a 3-pointer in the third, with LaVar Ball jumping up with arms waving from his sideline seat next to Lithuania-bound sons LiAngelo and LaMelo.
Ball scored 17 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 3PT, 2-3 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 40 minutes in Tuesday's 113-109 overtime loss to New York.
Against the Knicks, Ball set aside his offensive struggles and turned in a 17 point performance on Tuesday. Shooting 25.8 percent from three, the rookie guard found his shot after sinking 3-of-6 shots from beyond the arc. Tuesday's solid scoring night aside, Ball has only scored in the double-digits in nine games. As a result, Ball has been way more miss than hit in the scoring department. Consider his 17 points to be a rare bonus in what has been a disappointing season.
Lonzo Ball scored five points Saturday on 2-of-5 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Charlotte Hornets 110-99. Ball pulled down five rebounds and dished out nine assists, tallying a plus-minus of -6 in his 26:31 of playing time. He added one block. Ball went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.
Lonzo Ball scored 10 points Thursday on 5-of-11 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Philadelphia 76ers 107-104. Ball grabbed eight rebounds and dished out eight assists, tallying a plus-minus of +7 in his 38:22 of playing time. He added four blocks and three steals.
Ball scored in double digits after totaling 11 points in his previous two games so his dad should be happy.
Lonzo Ball scored two points Sunday, going 0 of 4 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Houston Rockets 118-95. Ball pulled down one rebound and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -9 in his 22:02 on the floor. He added two blocks.
Ball has been dealing with left calf tightness recently and didn't play much in the second half once the score got out of hand. Though the heralded rookie intends to play through the issue, there's certainly a chance his workload is reduced if the injury continues to bother him. However, he practiced in full Tuesday.
