Brandon Ingram's clutch three in Philadelphia ends Lakers losing streak

Adjust Comment Print

Ball saw Brandom Ingram outside the arc and sent the chest pass to the second-year Laker.

As Embiid raced out from the paint to close out on him, Ball drove the baseline, drawing attention from all five Sixers ... including Robert Covington, who had been guarding Ingram.

The Lakers led this game by as much as 16 points, and essentially led the entire night. Lonzo Ball took and missed a 3-pointer with 29 seconds left, and then Embiid missed his go-ahead shot with 12 seconds left.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid had a big night with 33 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal, and 5 blocks in Thursday's 107-104 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

"First off his size, at the point guard position, you don't see that and he knows his game", Ball said.

LaVar responded by egging the crowd on like he was a professional wrestler - one of the many hats he has worn in his brief time as a celebrity.

The rookie heard jeers from the Philly fans whenever he touched the ball early in the first quarter. The Sixers, as expected, wouldn't go down without a fight. Simmons came up a rebound shy of a triple-double and added five steals in a 115-109 win at Los Angeles on November 15 while Ball was held to two points on 1-of-9 shooting and two assists in 21 minutes.
