Ingram's game-winner lifts Lakers past Sixers

Ingram-Brandon-USNews-Getty-FTR

In the end, it was the Lakers that came out victorious thanks to Brandon Ingram. -500 teams continued as they dropped their second straight game Thursday against the Lakers, 107-104.

On Thursday, Embiid finished with 33 points, seven boards, six assists and five blocks, but it was his missed shot with 12.5 seconds left that sent Ball sprinting to the other end to set up Ingram.

Ball added 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four blocks and three steals without a turnover in 38 minutes of strong work running the show for L.A., which improved to 9-15 with the win. 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. Julius Randle led the way for the Lakers in the last quarter, with 10 of his 16 points in the final stanza.

If the Lakers had simply been able to hit their foul shots, the game would have been put to bed earlier. Ingram probably had the best night of any Laker.

Eight nights ago, Brandon Ingram showed a national audience that he might be ready to start taking a step into the spotlight, going toe-to-toe with prototype design/reigning NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant in a game that the Golden State Warriors needed overtime to win ... after Ingram missed a shot on the final play of the fourth quarter that would've clinched it before OT.

L.A. led by 15 early in the fourth quarter, but the 76ers stormed back behind Embiid and Richaun Holmes.

The 76ers trailed by 15 points with 11 minutes, 15 seconds left.

All three committed four turnovers, though, contributing to a night of unforced errors in which the Sixers coughed it up 18 times leading to 25 Laker points. Robert Covington finished with 19 points whilst six 76ers finished with double-figures. And Julius Randle was terrific down the stretch with 16 points, giving Embiid and the Sixers fits off pick and rolls. Overall, the Lakers' bench outscored the Sixers' bench 41 to 13.

Because the Lakers and Sixers played their two regular-season games against each other before the New Year, the National Basketball Association will likely have to wait another year before it gets to see this year's No. 1 and 2 draft picks face each other.

Next, LA plays in Charlotte on Saturday.
