Lonzo Ball Has Another Great Game Without Wearing His Sneakers

He scored 36 points in Nikes, dropped a triple-double in Adidas, and had a do-everything type game in Under Armour.

Industry sources said the traditional companies have offered Lonzo Ball deals in the range of $1.5 million per year. Against the Nets, it took a late fourth quarter push to come from behind and build a small lead. Ball had 16 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 94-83 to advance to Saturday's quarterfinal round.

In the night's most freaky move, Ball ditched the ZO2's for a pair of Kobe's, which garnered some attention from James. Instead, he's been wearing $495 signature ZO2 sneakers made by his father's Big Baller Brand. It turned out that Steph himself sent Lonzo a personal pair of his shoes to wear.

"Oh you can do that all day just so you can have something to write about", the elder Ball told ESPN. Asked whether his shoe choices are part of a master plan, he noted: "You could say that". Every athlete has their favorite brand or favorite shoes to play in. "The brand is nothing without the players".

With Ball sidelined almost the entire second half, the Mavericks rallied to within 96-95 on Corey Webster's 3-pointer with 2:17 left. Kyle Kuzma added an impressive 24 points (8/14 FG, 5/7 3PT) and five boards, while Matt Thomas' 20 points included five of six from beyond the arc.

"I think we exhausted them out a little bit", said Kuzma, who added four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots. And when you're comfortable shooting, the basket gets bigger and bigger.

Scoring 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting, Smith added three rebounds, six assists and two steals in a losing effort.

How often do we get to see a guard throwing strikes to his teammate across the court in the flawless spot?

Blue answered with a 3-pointer, then Alex Caruso went the length of the court for a layup before finding Kuzma for a corner 3-pointer on the next possession.

"Lonzo was great again", Lakers summer league coach Jud Buechler said. "And it's making it fun for all of us".

There have been two triple-doubles in the history of the NBA's Las Vegas Summer League. This summer, he is averaging 10.5 points per game and 4.5 rebounds per game.
