Despite Lonzo Ball struggling from the field, the Los Angeles Lakers Summer League team continues to win at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. The Lakers defeated the Brooklyn Nets Summer League team, 115-106, on Saturday night.
Ball, the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, went 4-of-12 from the field. He had 14 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three turnovers in the game.
Since he did not have his stroke in the game, Ball did come up with some key rebounds. He also helped the young Lakers team win over the Nets, who featured several players with prior NBA experience.
Ball continued to push the tempo when he’s in the game. Also, as he has done in the previous Summer League contests, he was looking for the leaking teammate down the court.
As his young NBA career continues, he’s getting better with his shot selection. Also, his improvement shows why the Lakers are winning their Summer League games – and have a good shot at winning the whole thing.
On Sunday, it’ll be a key match-up, as Dennis Smith Jr., along with his Dallas Mavericks Summer League teammates, will face Ball and the Lakers squad. This should be a must-see game for NBA fans.
