LaVar Ball Gives Joel Embiid Advice Following 76ers Loss to Lakers

Instead, it was LaVar Ball waving his arms and egging on Philadelphia 76ers fans to keep booing him from where he and his family sat in a box suite. From talking about his feud with President Trump, to meeting Joel Embiid, to discussing cheesesteaks, to calling himself a genius, and to actually complimenting Philadelphia, Ball was his typical boisterous and jubilant self.

On Thursday night in Philadelphia, Ben Simmons recorded a triple-double and Joel Embiid led all scorers with 33 points, but the Los Angeles Lakers claimed the victory in a ideal advertisment for the team's future. It was the first game-winning three-pointer by the Lakers since former Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell's made three against the Timberwolves in April.

The Lakers beat the Philadelphia 76ers 107-104 snapping a five-game losing streak and starting their road trip with a win.

Ball finished with 10 points, eight assists and eight rebounds. But Ball almost had a triple-double of his own with 10 points, eight assists and eight rebounds to go with four blocks and three steals.

After that play, Ingram was able to to make his 2nd 3-point shot courtesy of the 8 assists of Lonzo Ball.

Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson each added 16 points to help the Lakers snap a five-game skid.

Philadelphia 76ers Ben Simmons, center left, of Australia, goes up to dunk during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017, in Philadelphia.

In addition, the Lakers' defense forced mistakes and got out in transition off those mistakes.

The Sixers, however, were outscored 22-11 on second-chance points and saw the Lakers converted 18 turnovers into 25 points.

Joel Embiid had 33 points to lead the Sixers, who dropped their second straight and their third in four games. Ball was so disappointed in his play, he went to the team's practice facility hours after that game to shoot instead of doing his usual post home game routine of re-watching the game.

Ball said he considered pulling the trigger on a 3-point attempt from the right corner, then thought better of it.
