LaMelo Ball tonight against the Bulls:
18 points 13 assists 7 rebounds.
LaMelo is quietly putting up a close to or a combination of these numbers every game while the Hornets are winning (they’re 13-10) and despite the fact he isn’t shooting particularly well.
His stat line the previous 5 games:
19 points, 13 assists, 11 rebounds
10 points, 13 assists, 6 rebounds,
22 points, 4 assists, 4 rebounds,
28 points, 7 assists, 13 rebounds,
15 points, 11 assists, 9 rebounds.
If he wasn’t shooting 35% from the field he’d also average about 25-27 points. Additionally, he’s simply not turning the ball over. The 20 year old Ball is putting up Westbrook points/rebound/assists numbers and turning the ball over about half as much.
LaMelo Ball should be under serious consideration as an #NBA MVP contender, and remains a complete steal for anyone looking for a Darkhorse NBA candidate
