Great drive and dish to Brandon for the dagger.

I think Luke told him to take a 2 for 1. I like the shot in that it showed he wasn't scared.


I thought the same thing. The whole play looked very premeditated.

Just a few points is what's needed of him.


I liked his aggressiveness attacking the defense. That last shot looked like a set play.

Lonzo had a great game, but that last play was all BI. BI immediately recognized how imbalanced Philly’s defense was, immediately gave the ball back to Lonzo who had a very easy drive for any NBA player.

Great recognition by BI and of course clutch shot.

Definitely great play and BBIQ by the both of them. Like the two man games developing -- Ball/BI, Ball/Randle (Philly couldn't stop that down the stretch), and BI/Randle (BI becomes unstoppable if they continue doing that).

It was definitely a two for one on that pull up three. Nice game by Lonzo tonight. 10/8/8 is good, but then you add 4 blocks and 3 steals and that's a very nice outing.

Lonzo Ball's pace of play was great tonight against the Sixers. He needs to play fast every single night.

Lonzo had another one of those first-in-NBA history stat lines tonight -- 8 assists, 4 blocks, 3 steals, 0 turnovers, 0 personal fouls. And that is not even counting the 8 rebounds.

The kid is special.

Good that Magic is noticing what we see as well. Fastbreak Lonzo is one of the best Lonzos. Hopefully this ensures that we see it more and more.

BI hit a great game-winning shot, but Zo won us the game
