A true 'welcome to the NBA' moment for Lonzo Ball versus the feisty Patrick Beverley tonight. Ball has traditionally had issues with guards who apply heavy ball pressure (see: De'Aaron Fox) and his struggles breaking down defenders in the half court really showed up against Beverley. Becoming more of a threat as a pick and roll scorer, namely adding a reliable pull up and floater, will open up the floor for Ball in the half court. Only 10% of Ball's possessions at UCLA came via pick and roll, and he played a very transition-heavy style with Chino Hills as well. The adjustment to the ball-screen-based NBA was expected for Ball, who also struggled during UCLA's season-opening Australia tour and his Summer League debut. Despite tonight's struggles, Ball has elite instincts, is tremendous in transition, plays a quick-decision style that require much breakdown game, and will surely settle in as the season progresses if the Lakers can surround him with shooting.
