Lonzo Ball and the Los Angeles Lakers (1-2) will be hosting John Wall and the undefeated Washington Wizards (3-0) Wednesday night in what is bound to be a tough matchup for the 19 year old UCLA product.
Wall, one of the quickest guards in the NBA, will be playing with some extra motivation Wednesday after Ball’s outspoken father, Lavar, stated that “[Washington] better beware. Because Lonzo ain’t losing again! Not in the same week!”
“Nah, no mercy.”
The Wizards hope to remain the only undefeated team in the Eastern Conference by defeating a rebuilding Lakers squad. Their wins have been worrying, however, as three weaker teams have taken Washington close all the way into the fourth quarter. To establish themselves as an Eastern Conference powerhouse early in the season, the Wizards have to not only defeat Los Angeles, but beat them decisively.
Forward Markieff Morris (hernia) and guard Sheldon Mac (achilles) are out, with forward Jason Smith marked as questionable.
The Lakers, on the other hand, will hope that Ball wearing the colors of his alma mater when they rock throwback baby blue “MPLS” jerseys tonight will awaken something unseen. Fresh off a 119-112 loss to the New Orlean Pelicans, the Lakers will have the challenge of shutting down Otto Porter (18.3 PPG) and Bradley Beal (23.3 PPG).
A win for the Wizards in imperative for them to keep their title as a major Eastern Conference threat, while the Lakers will attempt to create some early season energy moving forward.
