Anyone who wasn’t in front a TV watching the Los Angeles Lakers take on the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday missed out on what might have been a pivotal moment in NBA history. Okay, maybe it wasn’t that significant, but it was a whole lot fun.
After trailing by as much as 17, the Lakers rallied in the fourth quarter to cap of a perfect road trip. Leading the charge for LA was none other than No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft Lonzo Ball, who had arguably his most memorable individual performance of the season.
Ball, in the final three minutes of the game, buried three clutch 3-pointers to silence the crowd at the AT&T Center. Per Lakers PR, Ball is the only player in franchise history to hit at least six 3-pointers and dish out 11 assists. Think about the greats that have worn the purple and gold and soak in how insane that is.
Here are the best moments from Ball’s big night. Enjoy!
