All The Highlights From Lonzo Ball's Breakout Night

In the span of 86 seconds Ball scored three times on drives to the rim, each move punctuated with a left-handed finish.

Both Ball and Ingram will look to continue having strong performances and showcase their talent as the National Basketball Association season rolls along, giving hope to the Lakers fans that have been waiting for this team to return to its former glory.

The 132-130 final scoreline against one of the NBA's worst teams showed the Lakers have a ton of work to do, especially on the defensive end, but you can see why so many observers are excited by the pieces LA has put together. "We weren't proud of yesterday so we came out today with more fight", Ball said to Trudell.

"I'm not calling him Kobe", Walton said, "but Kobe was the same way". I know everybody's going to say everything game by game. He only added one in the second half, but his distribution got better in the third quarter to make up for that. With everyone's eyes on the young upstart, Ball turned in an underwhelming performance, shooting 1-of-6 from the field and finishing with just three points in 29 minutes of action.

Ball made his regular-season debut last night as the Lakers met their hometown rival Los Angeles Clippers in a 108-92 loss. It included six players in double figures with Brandon Ingram scoring a career-high 25 points with three 3-pointers.
