But given Ball's positive trend throughout the summer league, which he credited to getting back in game shape more than three months after his last game at UCLA, repeating Westbrook's feat can't be ruled out.

Caleb Swanigan continued his strong summer league with 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Blazers, who trailed by 16 points in the first half before rallying to overtake the Grizzlies in the second half.

He's been more than just a scorer, adding 6.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists.

The Lakers will play their fifth game in six nights on Monday, so they could always play it safe with Ball. "His health is number one".

Wayne Selden led the Grizzlies with 13 points in 22 minutes. Teammate Wade Baldwin, the 2016 No. 17 overall pick, added 21 and hit the game-winning layup to take a 100-98 lead with 8.6 seconds remaining. The one area he has struggled in has been his three-point shooting. But the Nets still have NBA-quality players that have earned a 3-1 record thus far. He has an unorthodox form, but the current issue seems to stem from shot selection as opposed to mechanics. There's a lot of anticipation, a lot of hype around the game. It was the third straight game of double-digit assists for Ball.

Littered throughout this past June's draft are contenders for Rookie of the Year this season.

The Lakers already made a splash in free agency when they signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a one-year, $18-million deal, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that they are still looking for a way to sign Rajon Rondo.

Clearly, the young man is very talented, and Lakers president Jeanie Buss recently said the team's future is bright with him and the other young talent they've assembled. On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Lakers point guard ditched his own Big Baller Brand Z02's, and made a decision to pay a little tribute to Lakers legend Kobe Bryant by switching over to some all-purple Nike kicks.

The ball era has officially begun.
