Ingram lifts Lakers over Sixers

Share

After that play, Ingram was able to to make his 2nd 3-point shot courtesy of the 8 assists of Lonzo Ball.

Ball had one of his worst games of the season when the Lakers lost to the Sixers in Los Angeles on November 15.

Ball drove the baseline then whipped a pass to the perimeter, setting up Brandon Ingram for the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds left in a 107-104 victory over the 76ers at Wells Fargo Center that snapped a five-game losing streak. Ingram connected with eight-tenths of a second left, snapping a 104-104 tie. Joel Embiid scored 33 points and blocked five shots for the 76ers. "That's one of the reasons we lost this". Embiid poured in 16 of his points in the period, while Holmes had 11 of his 13. Those miscues, combined with frequently unfocused defense and an inability to string together multiple positive plays in a row for most of the first 2 1/2 quarters of the game, allowed the Lakers to build an early lead and hold off the Sixers late, giving L.A.'s two highly touted 20-year-olds a chance to hook up on the final possession and send Philly fans home unhappy.

Because the Lakers and Sixers played their two regular-season games against each other before the New Year, the National Basketball Association will likely have to wait another year before it gets to see this year's No. 1 and 2 draft picks face each other. After a timeout, Richaun Holmes' tying attempt at the buzzer was way off. A pair of 3-pointers by Covington helped the Sixers slice the deficit to 57-49 at the break.

On Thursday night in Philadelphia, Ben Simmons recorded a triple-double and Joel Embiid led all scorers with 33 points, but the Los Angeles Lakers claimed the victory in a ideal advertisment for the team's future.

Baker Mayfield claims Davey O'Brien Award
Memphis' Tom Hornsey won the award in 2013, with Utah's Tom Hackett (2014 and 2015) and Mitch Wishnowski (2016) following. Mayfield was the first player to be a three-time finalist since the award began naming just three finalists in 1991.

The Lakers, up just 75-70 at that point, responded with the last four points of the quarter, on Caldwell-Pope's layup and a follow shot by Andrew Bogut.

The Sixers gave the Lakers a fight during the fourth quarter and eventually tying the game, 104-104.

NOTES: Los Angeles enjoyed a 41-13 advantage in bench scoring. "I was just like, 'New beginnings, love you, good luck, I'm going to miss you, '" Embiid said with a smile, "and I made sure I let him know I was going to kick his (butt).".

T.J. Warren had 23 points for Phoenix.
