Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton was “happy” to see that LiAngelo Ball and his two UCLA Bruins teammates returned from China safe and sound after their arrest for allegedly shoplifting from three high-end luxury stores, including Louis Vuitton—not just for their sake, but also for Lonzo Ball’s. “It’s got to be kind of a little scary for them to be in another country and not know what’s going on,” Walton said after Lakers practice on Tuesday. “So obviously, I’m happy whether it’s them or any college kids returning home. I think Lonzo’s handled it well, so I’m happy for him obviously that his brother is home safe and everything else.”

Damian Lillard says that teams can no longer face the Sixers without expecting a fight. “I think in the past we took them lightly. They kind of jumped out and played hard and they beat us,” Lillard said following a Tuesday-evening practice at the Sixers training complex in Camden. “This year, you have no choice but to respect what they’ve done and how they’re playing. They’re not doing it like it’s luck, they’re out there hooping.”
Despite the rolled ankle, noticeable discomfort, and around-the-clock treatment, Lillard seems determined to face the Sixers. Lillard, who did not participate in practice, said he is looking forward to the matchup. “I told y’all that yesterday,” Lillard said, referring to previously saying he planned on playing in Philadelphia. “I pretty much got babied last night so it was good…I feel good.”
