Lonzo Ball doubles up historic summer triple-double

LAS VEGAS — What Russell Westbrook did for the triple-double last season, Lonzo Ball is doing this summer.

No player had recorded a triple-double in the 13-year history of the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League before Ball had one last Saturday against the Boston Celtics.

On Thursday, Ball, the No. 2 overall pick of this year’s NBA draft, made it two triple-doubles in four summer games. 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.

“Lonzo was great again,” Lakers summer league coach Jud Buechler said.

After scoring a summer-high 36 points in Wednesday’s win over the Philadelphia 76ers, Ball again struggled with his shot Thursday. He missed eight of his 10 3-point attempts and was 6-of-20 from the field overall. Yet Ball still had an enormous impact on the game with his playmaking. His 12 assists were as many as the Cavaliers had as a team.
