The Lakers were down by 22 at one point in the second quarter last night to the Pelicans, but made a fourth-quarter comeback after taking Lonzo out in the third with 2:37 left in the quarter. After that, the Lakers went on a 29-5 run which put the Lakers back on top 101-98.
Lonzo returned to the game with the 3 point lead and 7:05 left in the game. Despite his efforts, the Brow was just too much for the eldest Ball brother, and the Pelicans beat the Lakers 119-112.
Despite the loss, Lavar had a message for John Wall and the Wizards, the Lakers’ upcoming opponent on Wednesday night.
Here’s what Wizard center Marcin Gortat had to say about Ball’s comments on Twitter:
man….. pleaseeeeee!!! @JohnWall will torture him for 48min ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚

Yeah… Lonzo is in for a long night with the Dougie master himself.
Wall is currently averaging 27 points, nine assists, and four rebounds a game, and has easily separated himself as one of the premier point guards of the NBA.
See you on Wednesday, Mr. Ball.
