LAL NEWS & NOTES (1/12)
Ball + Ingram Lead the Way v. SAS
The Lakers have won 3 straight! Their latest victory came at the expense of the short-handed San Antonio Spurs at home.
In the victory, Brandon Ingram & Lonzo Ball led the charge - Ingram tallied 26! & 3 boards, while Lonzo stuffed the stat sheet: DD - 18, 10 boards, 6 dimes & 4! steals. Lonzo also hit 4!/7 from deep - his 4th triple served as a proverbial dagger, capping LAL's 15-0, 4th quarter run (game was tied 90-75) to pull it out.
Staying in attack mode was the name of game for Ingram, who looked good driving to the cup and making plays happened off the bounce - his efficiency didn't take a hit as his aggression rose (11/21 from the field, just 1 TO). Lonzo followed suit in his own way - for the third straight game, the rook reached double-digit boards - he's starting to make rebounding a true calling card, especially outta the backcourt.
Look for the two of them to continue playing heavy minutes (almost 37 for BI, 36 for Lonzo) as Luke Walton searches for victories.
