Lakers Beat Sixers on Brandon Ingram Game Winner

Both Ingram and Ball are 20 years old, and Thursday night felt like a signature win for a Lakers' team hoping for Ball and Ingram to lead the team for the foreseeable future.

Brandon Ingram was the hero Thursday night taking a dish from Lonzo Ball for a wide-open 3-point attempt that turned into the game-winner to sink the Philadelphia 76ers for a 107-104 victory. Philly won the first matchup in L.A. behind 46 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists from Joel Embiid and a near triple-double from Ben Simmons.

Ingram scored 21 points and made two three-pointers, including the game's dagger. It was the same story again this time around as Embiid finished with 33 points, seven rebounds and six assists in 36 minutes.

Booing Lonzo Ball just about every time he dribbled the ball and then going at it with LaVar, Sixers fans had The Center feeling as lively as ever. 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.

The Los Angeles Lakers were in Philadelphia to take on the 76ers Thursday night, and it did not disappoint.

On the latest Lakers Outsiders podcast, the guys get together to talk about the exciting matchup between two of the most promising young cores in the National Basketball Association. Ingram probably had the best night of any Laker. He shot 1-for-9 overall, including 0-for-6 from 3-point range, and had just two points, two assists and five rebounds in a nationally-televised game. He continued to build on his fast start but seemed to quiet down for much of the second half.

With four minutes to play, though, the Sixers only trailed by one point after being inspired by Embiid and Simmons. As for the Sixers, they've now lost three of their last four games, and have a date with LeBron James and the Cavs on Saturday.

Richuan Holmes, a third-year power forward, also played a role in the Sixers' late push and finished with 13 points off the Sixers' bench.

Ingram was helped in the scoring end alongside Julius Randle and and Jordan Clarkson both having 16 points.

The 76ers went in as favourites before their 13th sellout crowd in as many games, boasting a 13-10 season record and fifth spot in the eastern conference, while the Lakers (8-15) were 11th in the western conference.
