NBA: Lonzo Ball blows up with 36 points, 11 assists

Lonzo Ball put on his purple Kobe AD shoes and set Las Vegas Summer League ablaze on Wednesday night. He told reporters after the game he had a “Mamba mentality,” a reference to Kobe Bryant’s nickname.

Ball finished with 36 points with 11 assists, eight rebounds, five steals and two blocks in the Lakers’ 103-102 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers played without Markelle Fultz, whom they drafted first overall last month.

Second-year player Ivica Zubac finished with 21 points, two steals and two blocks.

The Lakers will play the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday at 7:30 at the Thomas & Mack Center.
