Lonzo Ball's debut unimpressive in Lakers' loss to Clippers

Los Angeles Lakers Kyle Kuzma

As good as the individual lines may look, though, the Lakers were hardly in the game on the night as the Clippers took 107 field goals and held the Lakers to 40.7 percent shooting from the field and 25 percent shooting from three. "Bring him out on the court with me and I will tear his ass up".

Told that Beverley didn't say Lonzo Ball's name when he screamed on his way into the locker room, LaVar Ball said it didn't matter.

The pressure of playing his first professional basketball game is in the past. Nobody is going to care about you.

"They want to set a tone and he'll see it all year long", Walton said. "But you put my son's name in it and you put my name in it, now you got some action and you got some people talking". At one point during the game's broadcast, he appears to be mouthing the word "b--" to Ball. I was 94 feet guarding him tonight. Deng could lineup as a starter on Thursday, but that has more to do with a leftover two-game suspension for starting shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope than Deng cracking the Lakers' rotation. Giving Beverley a little shove, he took the ball and dribbled it up the court. Both Johnson and LaVar said LaVar made an honest confession. He is known to be more of a passing guard, and he dished out six assists.

The fact that he was able to hold Ball scoreless on almost 30 plays, as well as limiting the assist opportunities, truly showed how much of an impact Beverley can make on defense.

"We got blown out, so I didn't play too well".

You'd think a performance like that would quiet loudmouth LaVar for at least a few hours, but that didn't happen. The rookie struggled in his Las Vegas Summer League debut before leading the Lakers to a summer league championship and becoming the MVP.

"Julius has been great this last week in practice", Walton said.
