New Orleans-Friday is the night of Little Brothers in the Smoothie King Center-is almost a historic night.
The Charlotte Hornets guard LaMelo Ball (LaMelo Ball) almost became a new triple-double record. He beat the New Orleans Pelicans 118-110 with 1
At the age of 19 and 139 days, LaMelo has surpassed Markelle Fultz (19 years and 317 days) to become the youngest feat ever.
Considering that Ramello helped the Hornets come back from the 18-point deficit, the youngest Ball brother’s victory over his brother was even sweeter. He assisted Gordon Hayward (Gordon Hayward) with 3:44, which provided a four-point buffer for Charlotte.
This performance is reminiscent of Lonzo’s second professional game with the Los Angeles Lakers, when he was almost the youngest player in a triple-double (29 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists). Last Friday, the 23-year-old Lonzo only scored 5 points, 3 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 block and 1 steal.
LaMelo said it was “cool” to be able to share the floor with his brother, but he was also very happy that his team was able to win. He pointed out that he was not afraid of the moments on national television.
Ramello said after winning: “Not at all. I’ve been there for a minute now.” “I have played ESPN games since I was a kid. So this is normal.”
Charlotte coach James Borrego said that Ramello was “free and easy” throughout the game.
After the game Borrego said: “That’s what we expect of him.” “It’s like what he did before, he has been there. He is not confused now. I am just proud of him. He is an excellent player. He has injected vitality into our team. He has brought us great confidence, the courage we need, sometimes. I thought he was great tonight.”
As Lonzo said on Thursday, this is the first “real” game between the two of them-outside of the two-on-two or three-on-three game played by the child in the backyard at home.
Since LaMelo played on the Hornets’ bench, they did not appear in their first game on Friday until Friday after he signed in at 6:38 in the first quarter. The two defended each other only for a few possessions, but the younger brother did manage to get Lonzo’s best result, because he entangled Lonzo in the middle of the second quarter layup and ended the third quarter with a deep 3-pointer. With his brother at his pointer.
LaMelo explained: “This is just one step, I pulled three.”
Before the start of the game, Borrego was asked to compare the two men. They are the first brothers ever to enter the top three NBA drafts.
Borrego said: “I think they are the leaders there.” “They have a strong vision. You can tell them that they have a higher understanding of the game. I think this is a common topic, because they are both right. The game has a high level of understanding and their teammates like to play with them. I think that is the biggest thing.”
LaMelo (LaMelo) also became the second-largest Double Hornets, setting a doubles double crown, only Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Michael Kidd-Gilchrist) was younger.
Regardless of the result, Friday night’s game is a lifetime dream of brothers and sisters.
Ramello said Thursday: “We always talked about it when we were young.” “We always knew we were going to join the league. Now it’s finally here. We are all excited.”
