Ball made several timely plays in the fourth quarter after entering with just over nine minutes left in the period as he recorded eight points with four rebounds and an assist.
Ball wore his Zo2 Prime shoes for his debut and once again had some trouble scoring. Still, Ball showed that when the Lakers play with energy and push the pace, he can be risky.
Versus the Suns, Ball scored a game-high of 29 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out nine assists, coming up short of a triple-double. He'll need to improve on his defense too after registering a minus-14. You can catch that game for FREE on NBA League Pass.
