WATCH: Lonzo Ball scores on, taunts Patrick Beverley vs. Clippers
Lonzo Ball got off to a hot start on national television on Saturday and it came at the expense of an old rival. Ball scored 10 points in the first quarter in a Saturday afternoon matinee on ABC against the Los Angeles Clippers.
It was an aggressive version of Ball out of the gates as he knocked down some long-range efforts and stole a pass for a basket and a fall on a fastbreak. He capped off his hot start by backing down old rival Patrick Beverley and knocking down a jumper before taunting him on his way back downcourt.
