Lakers Beat Sixers on Brandon Ingram Game Winner

Los Angeles Lakers Team awards for first quarter of season

Philadelphia 76ers Ben Simmons, center left, of Australia, goes up to dunk during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017, in Philadelphia.

This, though, wasn't a skirmish.

Ingram sank the shot to stun 76ers fans and cause Ball's father, LaVar, to celebrate in a luxury suite.

Philadelphia has a new enemy, and that's the Ball family. "I'm just playing with you, good job".

The Los Angeles Lakers built a 16-point third quarter lead, only to squander it late in the fourth quarter. Ball whipped a pass back out to Ingram, who set his feet, rose, fired and drilling a 3-pointer over Covington's outstretched hand to put the Lakers up by three with 0.8 seconds remaining.

On Thursday night in Philadelphia, Ben Simmons recorded a triple-double and Joel Embiid led all scorers with 33 points, but the Los Angeles Lakers claimed the victory in a flawless advertisment for the team's future. He still found way to be effective, leading all players with 33 points, seven rebounds, six assists and five blocks (see highlights).

Ball added 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four blocks and three steals without a turnover in 38 minutes of strong work running the show for L.A., which improved to 9-15 with the win.

Ingram was helped in the scoring end alongside Julius Randle and and Jordan Clarkson both having 16 points. The last time these two teams faced off against each other, Joel Embiid thoroughly dominated the Lakers. Ball did not get to play against top pick Markelle Fultz because of Fultz's shoulder injury.

The Sixers turned the ball over 18 times on Thursday, and the Lakers scored 25 points off those Philadelphia errors.

Despite the loss, Simmons became the fastest rookie since Lamar Odom in 1999-2000 to reach three career triple-doubles in 23 games or less. Ball was so disappointed in his play, he went to the team's practice facility hours after that game to shoot instead of doing his usual post home game routine of re-watching the game.
