Ball has 29-11-9, Lakers hold off Suns
PHOENIX (AP) In his second NBA game, Lonzo Ball earned his first victory and almost got a triple-double to boot.
Ball, the No. 2 overall draft pick who doesn't turn 20 until next Friday, had 29 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in the Los Angeles Lakers' 132-130 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night.
"The last game I shot six shots," he said. "That didn't work out so well. Figured I'd try something else."
