The Lakers lost to the Clippers, 96-93 in overtime, in their Summer League debut at the Thomas & Mack Center. Later in the game, Ball found Blue with a clear path to the basket, leading to a foul in the act of shooting. He also got torched defensively at times, unable to stay in front of his man at the top of the key.
Ball's first game against National Basketball Association competition reinforced some of the concerns raised by scouts during the draft process. Once, he was caught leaning the wrong way, allowing a straight-line drive to the basket.
As long as he stays close to the ball handler, Ball can create problems with his length.
Lonzo Ball was 1 for 11 from 3-point range, including a bad miss from well beyond the line - the kind of daring pull-up the Ball family is known for - with 1:16 to play in regulation. However, Ball hasn't even played a single game yet in the pros, and it seems the Lakers may want to ease him along slowly before they hand him the keys to the offense. That said, no one is playing to lose, and the Lakers will have the crowd in the stands and talent on the court on their side.

After speculation that you may control Zelda , it has been confirmed that you will still be in control of Link for this DLC. One, the Hyrule Historia, focuses on the history of the series, while the other focuses on art.
Offensively, Ball's issue is the exact inverse. The Lakers feature one of the youngest rosters in the National Basketball Association, so LA has a stacked roster with Ball and Ingram making the Lakers favorites in a town where that sort of claim requires numbers to back it up.
While LaVar Ball has dropped hints that he could tone down the bombastic comments and unending marketing of his Big Baller Brand apparel that turned him into an internet villain of sorts during Lonzo's lone season at UCLA, he was totally in character for his son's debut.
Crawford averaged 12.6 points per game on 41.3 percent shooting last season, while Rondo averaged 7.8 points, 6.7 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game. Magic may have dubbed him the new face of the NBA's marquee franchise and his father says the rookie is on the Lakers because he spoke it into existence.
In particular, Ball struggled to make the Clippers pay for going under screens and giving him the pull-up 3-pointer. Much more should be expected to come in that regard.
Unfortunately for Ball, it went downhill after that. But when going left or at a standstill off the dribble, Ball will probably be fine.
