PHILADELPHIA (AP) LaVar Ball’s fourth-quarter taunts to Philly fans turned up the volume on an already raucous atmosphere. His son, Lonzo, later helped silence the sold-out crowd.
Brandon Ingram scored 21 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds remaining on an assist from Lonzo Ball, to lead the Los Angeles Lakers to a 107-104 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night.
Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson added 16 points apiece for the Lakers, who snapped a five-game losing streak.
On the winning play, Ball drove to the basket before dishing back to Ingram on the right wing.
”He already saw it before it happened,” LaVar Ball said of his son’s assist.
Ingram calmly drained what he called the biggest shot of his young NBA career.
”I think he made a great pass,” Ingram said. ”I had the confidence to shoot it.”
Lonzo Ball finished with 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.
The winning basket sent Ball’s dad, LaVar, into a wild celebration in a suite.
”When I come this far of a distance, it’s hard to beat him,” LaVar Ball said. ”I don’t like all them losses. So, he’ll do whatever it takes to get that `W.”’
LaVar Ball later embraced his son outside the Lakers locker room and told him how proud he was.
