Lakers’ Brandon Ingram accepts coach’s challenge to fill in at point with Lonzo Ball out

first_imgIngram averages 15.6 points per game and is the Lakers’ most lethal scorer, and presents defenders with a choice.“He gets in the paint and all eyes turn toward him defensively,” Nance said. “So, he kicks it out, it’s there and the defense is automatically in scramble mode.”His 3.6 assists per game mostly come out of halfcourt sets with him on the wing, where he is considered a skilled playmaker. Against the Nets, Walton was betting that those same skills would carry over to a bigger stage, if Ingram stopped thinking too much and was willing to push the pace.“I tried to find a way to get my teammates the ball,” Ingram said. “I knew if I was aggressive to the rim I had some shooters on the wing to kick out to. I think that got contagious tonight when we were moving the basketball.”LEAPS AND REBOUNDSAfter Walton decided to move Ingram to the point and Tyler Ennis to the bench, he had a hole to fill in his starting lineup.Two nights after questioning his team’s effort and toughness in an embarrassing loss in Orlando, he turned to rookie guard Josh Hart.“He brought toughness,” Walton said.That and shooting. And rebounding.Hart, who has been as pleasant a surprise as anyone this season, finished with 15 points and a career-high 14 rebounds.“I was channeling my inner Charles Barkley,” Hart said. “Undersized guys. That was one emphasis Coach Luke talked about. I just wanted to go in and just hustle. And just play hard and that’s just a fight to the death.”Melodrama aside, Hart turned in one of the best rebounding games of the season for the Lakers. His 14 boards were more in a game by any Laker other than Julius Randle and Ball, whose 16-rebound night against Denver on Nov. 19 remains the gold standard for guards on the glass.It was Hart’s third double-digit rebounding night of the season.“His physical presence was great tonight for us,” Walton said. “I felt like he had kind of gotten away from that a little bit the last week or so. For whatever reason he really picked it up again tonight.”That physicality is a trait that sets Hart apart on the court, and it caught the eye of one of the Lakers’ other bruisers.“Obviously,” Nance said, “I admire what he does as a guard a little bit more than the next person.”Nance said he is “constantly” coaching Hart. His message?“As a rookie, play defense, defense, defense,” Nance said. “That will get you on the court and just expand from there. And he’s doing a terrific job of that.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersIngram nearly notched a triple-double, finishing with 16 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in 36 minutes.“I think right now he’s about to pass out,” Larry Nance Jr. quipped.Ingram experienced groin tightness after the win and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s nationally televised game against Oklahoma City. However, with Lonzo Ball sidelined for the immediate future, Ingram gives the Lakers another option at the most important position on the court.And it seemed to help Ingram. Walton suggested that the second overall pick from two years ago has been somewhat timid since sitting out two games earlier this month due to a sprained ankle.“We just wanted him to be more engaged in what we’re doing,” Walton said. “And put more pressure on the other team’s defense.” OKLAHOMA CITY — Luke Walton had asked his small forward to make the shift to point guard before. He had long been romanced by the idea of possessions starting in the gifted hands of the 6-foot-9 Brandon Ingram, a prototype for the generation of positionless basketball.But before Walton went to that well again on Friday, Ingram had to pass one test.“We needed him to tell us he wanted that challenge,” Walton said following the Lakers’ 102-99 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. “And we needed to know that he’d push the pace for us.“He said he was up for both.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
