From talking about his feud with President Trump, to meeting Joel Embiid, to discussing cheesesteaks, to calling himself a genius, and to actually complimenting Philadelphia, Ball was his typical boisterous and jubilant self.
Lonzo Ball drove the baseline Thursday night. And the play on the court was just as electric.
Los Angeles extended its advantage to 73-57 late in the third quarter before Philadelphia went on a 13-2 run capped by Jerryd Bayless' 3-pointer with 43.3 seconds left in the period. After Lakers rising star forward Brandon Ingram nailed the game-winning three-pointer with 0.8 seconds left in regulation to give the Lakers a 107-104 win, it was clear that this game was going to be a tough pill to swallow for Philly at Wells Fargo Center. Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson added 16 apiece off the bench for Los Angeles, which snapped a five-game losing streak. BI was only 7-for-21 from the field on the game, but he made the shot that mattered most with less than a second remaining on the clock.
The Lakers and Sixers have played each other twice this season, and both encounters have proved, if nothing else, that these two teams play some entertaining highlight basketball against one another.

Embiid led the way for Philadelphia with 33 points on 11-for-17 shooting, seven rebounds, six assists, five blocks and a steal. Ball was so disappointed in his play, he went to the team's practice facility hours after that game to shoot instead of doing his usual post home game routine of re-watching the game.

Despite the loss, Simmons became the fastest rookie since Lamar Odom in 1999-2000 to reach three career triple-doubles in 23 games or less. The show commenced when Ball was spotted in his suite waving his arms and riling up fans. "He doesn't let anybody tell him to get away from his stuff".
