Brandon Ingram's clutch three in Philadelphia ends Lakers losing streak

Brandon Ingram's clutch three in Philadelphia ends Lakers losing streak

Despite Philly hustling back in transition and having a timeout in his pocket, Walton chose to let the Lakers play, and Ball pulled it back out, passing to a trailing Ingram on the right wing - who, realizing Ball could not have been more open, quickly kicked it to Lonzo in the far corner.

Lonzo Ball sucked in the defense and found a wide-open Brandon Ingram for the game winning three-pointer that passed through the net with 0.8 seconds remaining to give the Los Angeles Lakers a 107-104 victory and snap a five-game losing streak. Philly won the first matchup in L.A. behind 46 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists from Joel Embiid and a near triple-double from Ben Simmons.

Ingram led the Lakers with 22 points on the night, while Ball put up 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four blocks and three steals with no turnovers in an impressive box score-stuffing performance. It was the same story again this time around as Embiid finished with 33 points, seven rebounds and six assists in 36 minutes. They earned it by playing a cleaner game for 48 minutes.

Despite this incredible statistic, the Aussie's triple-double was just not enough for the Philadelphia 76ers to overcome the Los Angeles Lakers, falling 1-7-104 at home. Tonight, it was the Lakers who got the W.

Embiid sank two foul shots with 39 seconds left to tie the game. Ingram probably had the best night of any Laker. Then, Ingram came to life late in the fourth quarter and found Julius Randle with an impressive hip-level pass on a drive.

Eight nights ago, Brandon Ingram showed a national audience that he might be ready to start taking a step into the spotlight, going toe-to-toe with prototype design/reigning NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant in a game that the Golden State Warriors needed overtime to win ... after Ingram missed a shot on the final play of the fourth quarter that would've clinched it before OT.

Philadelphia ( 13-11 ) has lost two straight and three of its last four games. Robert Covington finished with 19 points whilst six 76ers finished with double-figures.

Ingram was helped in the scoring end alongside Julius Randle and and Jordan Clarkson both having 16 points. Overall, the Lakers' bench outscored the Sixers' bench 41 to 13.

Next, LA plays in Charlotte on Saturday.
