Trimble plays little in Sixers' 103-102 loss to Ball, Lakers

Patrick McCaw scored 26 points, Jordan Bell had another big defensive effort and the Warriors won their opening game of the tournament stage.

Making Lonzo's night even sweeter was the fact he helped the team grab a one-point victory over the Philadelphia Sixers, 103-102.

Lonzo Ball's dud of a debut is long forgotten.

Ball was having an up-and-down start to his pro career in Las Vegas. He is who many fans have shown up to see and have been the main topic of discussion. People thought he was avoiding De'Aaron Fox, but the Lakers were smart to hold him out.

Regardless of whether the shoes had an effect on Ball's game, consumers might prefer to purchase Kobe A.D.s, which retail for $160, over the $495 BBB sneakers.

More impressive than Ball's stat line was his ability to lead the Lakers back from a double-digit deficit.

In the night's most freakish move, Ball ditched the ZO2's for a pair of Kobe's, which garnered some attention from James. Three of those points came in the final half-minute as the Laker guard drove the lane, got fouled, and made a shot, with the three-point play putting his squad up one over the 76ers.

The Los Angeles Lakers also got 21 points from Ivica Zubac and a double-double of 13 points and 12 boards from Kyle Kuzma.

John Collins had 25 points and nine rebounds for ninth-seeded Atlanta (2-2). Thomas was 4-for-5 from the floor and 2-for-3 from 3-point range.

The Lakers received excellent contributions from everyone against the 76ers.

"He can really pass it", James, who was in Las Vegas to work out and guide his young teammates in the summer league, told ESPN.

His next opportunity to shine comes against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night in the round of 16 of the Summer League playoffs.
