Lonzo Ball Had a Weak Debut, and Patrick Beverley Cursed at Him

Lonzo Ball did not have a memorable NBA debut. The 19-year old point guard made one basket, missed five shots, and was basically hounded from start to finish by Clippers pit bull/point guard Patrick Beverley. It got ugly at times, because as we told you months ago, LaVar Ball put a target on his son’s back.

Beverley was so amped for the matchup, he made a 3-pointer over Ball, and then celebrated this way:

The real takeaway here: The Clippers look much better than anticipated, and the Lakers looked like a team without a clue on offense. Ghastly on 3-pointers (4-of-16), just 21 assists against 18 turnovers, Brandon Ingram was just 3-of-15, and at points in the 2nd half, the Clippers led by 30.

Hey, it’s one game, nobody overreact … but this can’t be how the Lakers wanted to open the season, getting blown out at home by your historically inferior rivals who just lost their best player in the offseason.
