This time around Lonzo opted for the “Nightlife” colorway of James Harden’s Adidas Harden Vol 1.
LeBron did, however, take a subtle jab at Ball’s Big Baller Brand shoes via social media. He tossed alley-oop passes, outlets for dunks, kick-outs for jumpers and nifty passes in traffic. Ball took matters from there while operating as a scorer and facilitator to put the Lakers up by 20, 54-34. His effort helped the Lakers offset Kay Felder’s game-high 25 points and advance to the championship quarterfinals.Lonzo Ball records his second triple-double of #NBASummer!
The Lakers shot 60.7 percent from the field, and at one point in the first half made a blistering 21 of 25 shots. As with anyone in the Summer League, it’s important not to jump to conclusions and just enjoy the show that they’re putting on. There’s always comparisons of the great players in this league. “We know that part of his game is going to come”. And after a pair of three-point bombs from Brussino, the Mavericks drew even on the scoreboard at 10-all. Forward Rosco Allen scored 18 off the bench. As a 19-year-old rookie, Ball will be tasked with defending the likes of Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook and Kyrie Irving. “Are you trying to start a bidding war here?”
Averaging 17.0 points, 9.8 assists, 8.3 rebounds, 3.3 steals and 1.5 blocks, Ball has somehow managed to brighten the already-blinding spotlight on himself. Smith also had a near-spectacular dunk that had people talking despite the attempt being missed.
The matchup with No. 5 overall pick De’Aaron Fox didn’t last long. “He was just dynamite there for about a 12-minute stretch there in the first and second quarter a little bit”. He was held scoreless in seven minutes. Ferrell had 15 points and Ashley had 13.
Amusing how things work. the Lakers’ last great point guard ushering in the era of the Lakers’ next great point guard, as if it was meant to be. By then it was too late as 16th-seeded Trail Blazers pulled off the upset of the top-seeded Raptors. Lonzo scored 16 points, dished 12 assists and grabbed ten rebounds.
