Lonzo Ball dazzles with first LA Lakers assist

Lonzo Ball dazzles with first LA Lakers assist

On Friday night, taking part in his first Summer League game as a pro, Ball answered that question immediately. It will certainly be something to watch closely when the Lakers and Ball go through their first notable adversity in the upcoming season.

"Tough game. Didn't get the job done".

"Just with the year I have in this league, I can help him a little bit and tell him what to expect and how to go about the game", Ingram said of Ball.

Brandon Ingram was the Lakers' star who rose to the occasion, scoring 26 points, including a driving layup with 29.2 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime. Look how many Laker fans out here.

He had just 5 points and 5 assists, on two-of-15 shooting, including a one-of-11 clip from long range, plus 3 turnovers in 32 minutes of play. His on-ball defense was also deficient, but it is always hard to find a rookie who can stay in front of his man at this stage.

It wasn't the best of debuts, but not to worry, it's only the first game of the Summer League.

At the end of the day, Lonzo Ball still hopes to be an incredible x-factor in Los Angeles.

He already has the respect of Ball, who after being drafted said that he is excited to play alongside Ingram and thinks that he can become a star in the National Basketball Association.




At least Ingram impressed the Lakers onlookers, which included president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, GM Rob Pelinka, coach Luke Walton, associate head coach Brian Shaw, assistant Jesse Mermuys and players Larry Nance Jr. and Corey Brewer. Point guard Kendall Marshall had 11 assists.

Lonzo had his worst game ever and only lost by 3-4 points. "That is probably going to be the worst game I have all week".

"As Johnson recalls, 'He said, "Earvin, look, I'm not following my son".

Lonzo's family was also in attendance, of course, and his father, LaVar, was in his typical form post-game.

Lavar Ball added, "It's better for him to start at the bottom".

He averaged 10.6 points on 64.7 percent shooting, 7.2 rebounds and 2.6 blocks during the event, and that final stat led to his favorite nickname: "Zublocka". "I'll be better tomorrow".

Just before overtime, Ingram took a fall that left him on the floor for a few moments and prompted the Lakers to sit him for precautionary reasons.
