Lakers about to break the 7-way tie of team 5-7.   The loss will have them (for the time being) in the 6th worst slot.   Not good (bad) enough, but headed in the right direction.

Ball with the triple double.

BUT Lakers on their way to a loss!  8)

Hopefully they lose.  Ball on his way to another NBA.com headline.  Kuzma, meanwhile with a double-double and probably a 20/10.   Dang... why the heck did he slide to them?

Rightfully so on his way to that headline. Joins a club of 33 other games since 1983 getting a triple double with at least 3 steals, 3 blocks..

I usually agree with Stephen A. Smith, but him saying he "smells bust" about Lonzo is simply ridiculous. Guy is going to be an All-Star..mark it down.

Of course he'll be an All star, it run on fan votes... Doesn't mean he'll deserve it.

He was picked 2nd overall ahead of some very sure things, he's going to have to be a top 15 player at some point in time to be a good pick. At the moment that's a heck of a long road for him

Lakers lost.

So Lonzos triple double isn’t impressive. Am I the only one not impressed by stat ladders like Westbrook who are able to get Triple doubles and their team loses at the end ? It’s selfish gameplay

Sometimes I worry I get too wrapped up in being a fan and hating the Lakers and I've drifted too far from objectivity and then I read something like this. I want the Lakers to fail and I'm sick to death of the way the media treats Lonzo Ball but he is now the youngest player to ever get a triple double. Win or lose, that's impressive.

Embiid 44pts / 14 rebounds / 7 assists

Danny Ainge said in a radio interview that the team would, in fact, have taken Embiid had he been on the board when their pick came up.

“Yes, we would have,” Ainge said on The Sports Hub’s “Toucher & Rich,” via MassLive. “He was not red-flagged, meaning ‘Stay away at all costs.’ He was rated a little bit less than (he would have been) with (his injury) risk, but he was a guy that we were looking at, had he fallen.”
