Ball bounces back from forgettable debut in style with classy triple double

Los Angeles Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers

With 22.8 seconds left in the game, Lonzo Ball dunked the ball and reached a summer league milestone that highlighted how well he played all game.

While Ingram wanted to return, the Lakers held their young prospect out of overtime before falling to the Los Angeles Clippers 96-93 on Friday night.

He added four rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block and three turnovers as well. Look how many Lakers fans out here. But the number he was most concerned with was the final score: 86-81 Boston. However, LaVar Ball assured them there was nothing to worry about.

With no Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball took charge of the Lakers' offense a bit more in this second game.

A sellout crowd invaded the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus Saturday to see two of the NBA's greatest rivals square off.

Lakers third-year forward shared a tweet from former National Basketball Association guard Baron Davis that chastised anyone for overreacting to Ball's play. He finished the game with his first ever triple-double with 11 points, 11 assists, and 11 rebounds.

On Friday night, Ball was an unmitigated disaster against the Los Angeles Clippers. Everything else, though, looked just like the Lonzo Ball that excited the Lakers so much in the pre-draft process.

Buechler applauded the 19-year-old point guard for making such successful adjustments only 24 hours after his unsightly opener. Of course, they let him have it! Dragan Bender, after a disappointing rookie season, shot 4 for 13 for 11 points. "I already knew what he was doing". "My confidence is there". "I just missed open shots". Even when Tatum's strength and footwork don't yield makeable shot attempts from the midrange, he's capable of knocking down turnaround jumpers and fadeaways with a hand in his face.

Tatum's double-double takes the matchup of picks because he dropped 27 points and was the definition of clutch.

Overall, Lonzo's defense was adequate, also considering his rebounding effort (he picked up three defensive boards). "But we didn't get the win so that's all I really care about". However, he continued to struggle with shooting the ball from the perimeter by going just 1-5 from downtown.
