Lonzo Ball dishes to Brandon Ingram for game-winning shot over Sixers

Lonzo Ball dishes to Brandon Ingram for game-winning shot over Sixers

Despite Philly hustling back in transition and having a timeout in his pocket, Walton made a decision 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.

The Lakers led this game by as much as 16 points, and essentially led the entire night. But with the game tied at 104-104, Ball drove baseline before finding a wide open Brandon Ingram for a game-winning 3-pointer with eight-tenths of a second remaining to lift the Lakers to a 107-104 victory.

Ingram led the Lakers, making their first stop on a four-game trip, with 21 points while Ball flirted with a triple-double, logging 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, as well as four blocked shots and three steals.

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. Ball did not get to play against top pick Markelle Fultz because of Fultz's shoulder injury.

The Sixers gave the Lakers a fight during the fourth quarter and eventually tying the game, 104-104.

"I know I had a chance to", he said, "but I never really thought about it".

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.

That night, Ball made just 1 of 9 shots from the field and was kept on the bench during the fourth quarter. Rookie Ben Simmons posted his third triple-double of the season, with 12 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds, while Covington added 19 points (4-for-6 from 3-point land) and six rebounds. As for the Sixers, they've now lost three of their last four games, and have a date with LeBron James and the Cavs on Saturday.

On the latest Lakers Outsiders podcast, the guys get together to talk about the exciting matchup between two of the most promising young cores in the National Basketball Association.

But the Lakers never fell behind, hanging on to break a losing streak and quiet their, and the Ball family's, dissenters.

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.
