The Lakers head coach told reporters that Ball does enough elsewhere to still make an impact even when he’s struggling to connect, particularly from deep, via Spectrum SportsNet: “He does those things. As he continues to grow as a player, he’ll develop other parts. I think right now he depends a lot on his three, but a lot of that is because teams go under (screens) on him, and that’s an open shot for him. He’ll get more to his game as far as being able to score effectively midrange, around the rim, as he continues to grow as a player. As far assists, rebounds and all the steals, that’s when we went on the run in the first half. He was the one rotating over and getting all deflections. So he does all those little things to help us win throughout the game. The offensive stuff will come.”
Ball actually was intentionally fouled late in the game by Denver, but it most likely was a strategic move: Ball entered the game shooting 48.2 percent from the line. He missed both free throws with 1:24 left. “I am not surprised at all,” Ball said of the Hack-a-Lonzo tactic. “When I am on the court, teams are probably going to do that. I just got to knock down free throws. Yeah, [it was the] first time [it’s happened ever]. I just got to go to the line and hit my two.”
