It’s been a pretty good week for the Ball Bros. I’m assuming you heard about LaMelo Ball almost scoring a 100 earlier this week. Even “retired” porn stars were taking about it. I’m also assuming you heard the critics complaining about the lack of D played on LaMelo. Well, the same can’t be said for No. 6 Oregon’s defense on big brother Lonzo Ball, who put up 15 points, 11 rebounds and one deep nail-in-the-coffin three with about 30 seconds left in regulation against the Ducks on Thursday.
The clutch three helped UCLA pull off a three-point win, despite being down by 19 in the first half. It also probably made a few NBA GMs rethink where they would rank him in the top three of the next NBA draft.
“To get a win this way, I’m just so proud of my team,” UCLA head coach Steve Alford said. “We’ve talked about trust all year and we just continue to trust our guys. We didn’t get into a great flow in the first half. Arguably Lonzo’s toughest 20 minutes to start the game and then maybe one of his better 20 minutes to end the game. That’s how special he is.”
