Lonzo Ball is under a microscope, thanks largely to his outspoken father. He recorded the first triple-double since the league began recording stats in 2008.

Lonzo Ball is indeed having one of the best individual performances by a rookie in the Summer League, but fact remains that he is still competing mostly against guys who are playing for training camp invites.

Looking to build on Saturday's dominant 91-74 win over Boston in the quarterfinals, the No. 3-seeded Mavericks tried to cool down the streaking Lakers in front of the Las Vegas crowd.

Rashad Vaughn and Sterling Brown scored 12 points apiece for the No. 14 Bucks (1-3). Second, the Lakers lost games.

He's been more than just a scorer, adding 6.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists.

This time around Lonzo opted for the "Nightlife" colorway of James Harden's Adidas Harden Vol 1.

According to Lonzo Ball, when you go independent like he did, you can wear whatever brand of shoes you want.

As has been the case throughout the past week, Ball's defensive rebounding allowed him to throw long lead passes that produced easy scores in transition for his teammates. "It's just nice to get out there and do that". We want him to set the pace for our team, set the pace for the game. And when you're comfortable shooting, the basket gets bigger and bigger.

Ball will receive treatment on his calf on Sunday evening and Monday morning before the Lakers make a determination on his status against the Blazers, who beat the Grizzlies 87-82 in their semifinal game on Sunday. "It's an open opportunity for me and I just try to do what I can to capitalize on that and take full advantage of it". "So credit to them".

The Mavs trailed the Lakers by as many as 25 in the second quarter, by 22 at halftime and were still in a 17-point hole at the end of the third period before they launched that comeback.

The Nuggets, who had dropped their first three games and are seeded 23rd, will meet the No. 7 Brooklyn Nets. Ball's final statline included 16 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists.
