Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 35 points on 13-20 shooting (including 8-10 from 3-point range) to help his team rally from a 15-point deficit and beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 130-119, in overtime. The win snaps a six-game losing streak for the Lakers. Andrew Wiggins led the Timberwolves with a game-high 36 points.

That's as mad as I've ever seen Karl-Anthony Towns after Julius Randle flew in unchecked for a putback slam. Lakers up 121-112, 1:24 left

Lonzo Ball just announced he's declaring for the 2017 NBA Draft. It's a no brainer. He's a top 3 pick. Several lottery teams have him No. 1 on their board. Mediocre game tonight won't affect his draft stock much. Put him on the floor with NBA players and he's going to be a monster.

Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, De'Aaron Fox, Dennis Smith Jr., Frank Ntilikina. May be the greatest point guard draft ever. Four of these guys could go in the Top 5

You love that Lonzo Ball never changes expression, doesn't run mouth with officials & handles self with class. NBA teammates will love him.

Big winner in the NBA Draft tonight may be Markelle Fultz. Coming into the NCAA Tournament, scouts had Fultz slightly ahead of Lonzo Ball on their boards. A huge Final 4 run for Ball may have pushed him ahead of Fultz. With Ball out and struggling against NBA tart like Fox, think Fultz retains his edge for the No. 1 pick.

Lonzo Ball was a major disappointment, especially in the second half. 10 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 blocks, 4 turnovers. Just 1-6 from three. Struggled defensively all night. Strangely passive at times. Not a great last impression for NBA scouts. Kentucky exposed his weaknesses. Still think he's a Top 3 pick.

Ramona Shelburne @ramonashelburne

Very impressed w/ De'Aron Fox & Kentucky. His all-around game was already NBA ready. Tonight he showed poise and tremendous scoring ability

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

De'Aaron Fox with a masterpiece tonight. 39 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 1 turnover, 13-20 shooting. Completely outplayed Lonzo Ball on both ends of the court. Speed, explosion, toughness, heart, great feel for the game. He's a consistent jumper away from being a monster in the NBA someday.

The crazy thing is that this isn't even close to being one of Cal's most talented teams. NBA backcourt helps, but still.

Rockets forward Ryan Anderson said he twisted his right ankle when stepping on DeMarcus Cousins' foot.
