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

Los Angeles Lakers Team awards for first quarter of season Brandon Ingram's game-winner from Lonzo Ball was every Lakers fans' dream
Sammy Stanley | 08 December, 2017, 08:25

Ingram led the Lakers with 22 points on the night, while Ball put up 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four blocks and three steals with no turnovers in an impressive box score-stuffing performance. The Sixers' attempt at an answer on the other end - a quick inbounds for a Richaun Holmes heave - didn't even approach the rim, and the Lakers had sealed a 107-104 win and secured a measure of revenge after Embiid's monster game in L.A. last month.

Ingram led the Lakers with 21 points. Lonzo Ball, loudly booed every time he touched the ball, had 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

On Thursday night in Philadelphia, Ben Simmons recorded a triple-double and Joel Embiid led all scorers with 33 points, but the Los Angeles Lakers claimed the victory in a ideal advertisment for the team's future.

Agent Harrison Gaines represents all three of Ball's sons, including Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo. And Julius Randle was terrific down the stretch with 16 points, giving Embiid and the Sixers fits off pick and rolls.

In the second quarter, Laker's Jordan Clarkson scored his first 8 points and helped his team maintain the lead and not let the Sixers get over their score, ending the second with the Lakers leading, 57-49.

With four minutes to play, though, the Sixers only trailed by one point after being inspired by Embiid and Simmons. Overall, the Lakers' bench outscored the Sixers' bench 41 to 13.

The Lakers edged back in front, but Philadelphia tied it again, at 104-104, on Embiid's two free throws with 39.8 seconds to play.

Ball nearly had a triple double with 10 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists.

Their lead expanded to as many as 16 points in the third quarter, but the Sixers answered. Despite Philly hustling back in transition and having a timeout in his pocket, Walton chose to let the Lakers play, and Ball pulled it back out, passing to a trailing Ingram on the right wing - who, realizing Ball could not have been more open, quickly kicked it to Lonzo in the far corner. "He is a great passer, rebounder and does all the little things".

"I knew it was going to be like that", Ball said of the crowd.
