So after a rather disappointing opening night performance Lonzo Ball and the Lakers find their offense and just enough defense to eek out a win in the valley of the sun.
Lonzo came out very aggressive tonight going 12 -27 from the floor to lead the Pandas in scoring with 29 points. If he continues to be aggressive looking for his shot teams will have to respect him as a scorer opening up more passing lanes. His passing and rebounding were impressive as well as he finished with 11 rebounds and 9 dimes.
If this is who Brandon Ingram really is offensively maybe we are looking at a guy ready for a breakout season. I think he settles into a 18-20 point a night guy which isn’t too shabby.
Kyke Kuzma and Jordan Clarkson provided needed scoring punch from the bench chipping in 15 and 17 apiece. Original Panda Julius Randle chipped in with 8 points as well.
Next up for the Pandas a home game versus Boogie and the Brow Sunday night in the city of Angels.
