LiAngelo Ball followed up his 72-point performance in a Big Baller Brand Challenge game with a game-high 44 points (17-42 FG, 5-18 3PT) in the PPV BBB London Clash Game on Monday. His brother, LaMelo, put up 39 points on 17-of-35 shooting (5-14 3PT) with 16 boards, 16 assists and 6 steals. Underrated teammate Big Kervin Bristol had 12 points, a game-high 23 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 blocks during the 127-110 friendly victory for Vytautas.
This was Melo’s second triple-double in Lithuania. The first was a 40-point triple-double (40/11/10) during LaVar’s coaching debut.
