Lonzo Ball records a Summer League triple-double in Lakers' loss to Celtics – Los Angeles Times

With 22.8 seconds left in the game Saturday night, Lonzo Ball dunked the ball and reached a summer league milestone.

Ball scored 11 points with 11 rebounds and 11 assists in his second game in a Lakers uniform, an 86-81 loss to the Boston Celtics. He zipped passes around to his teammates — wraparound passes, no-look passes. And each time he did, the Lakers-centric crowd cheered — often louder for the pass than for the finish.

“It slowed down a lot,” Ball said. “Like I said, it’s only our second game so things are starting to come, but it’s a lot better than yesterday.”

Said Lakers summer league coach Jud Buechler: “He did that in college in games where he didn’t score in double figures but completely dominated the game with his rebounding, his defense and his passing. So I’m not surprised that even though he didn’t have a big scoring night, his fingerprints were all over the stat sheet.”
