Lonzo Ball (sore right groin) put on a mesmerizing show for the Lakers fans in Vegas on Wednesday, finishing with 36 points, 11 assists, eight rebounds, five steals, two blocks and six turnovers.
He's been stuffing the stat sheet in Vegas and made a procession of big plays to help L.A. erase a big deficit, showing a closer's instinct. He looked confident from all over the court, too, making 12-of-22 FGs, 3-of-10 threes and 9-of-12 FTs. The Summer League caveat applies and we'll get a better feel for his play vs. NBA competition in the preseason, but for now, just sit back and enjoy. From an entertainment standpoint, we hope he's not rested for Thursday's tournament game.
