Lonzo Ball Sparks Thrilling Scoring Sequence Between Lakers and Knicks

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistDecember 13, 2017

Midway through the third quarter, the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks were stuck at 61-61 for almost a minute-and-a-half. Both teams then caught fire in a riveting back-and-forth starring Lonzo Ball.

Playing his first NBA game at Madison Square Garden, the Lakers rookie broke the stalemate by slamming home an alley-oop from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

After Kristaps Porzingis responded with a three-pointer, Ball answered with a trey of his own. He then followed an Enes Kanter dunk with a layup, bringing his total to seven points in 67 seconds.

Sitting in the front row, Ball's family liked what they saw. His father, LaVar, jumped out of his seat after all three buckets. He even high-fived a young fan.

Each team scored 10 points before anyone missed.
