Another win and the Lakers will be champions once again.It might be summer league, but the buzz around rookie Lonzo Ball has ramped up the intrigue for the Lakers, who beat Dallas, 108-98, on Sunday to advance to tonight’s championship game against Portland at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.Ball finished with 16 points, 10 assists and four rebounds, but checked out with 6:26 left in the third quarter due to tightness in his right calf and did not return.“It’s the first time my calf (was) that tight so it was just being cautious,” Ball said. “I wanted to get back out there, but the training staff took care of me and I will be with them tonight and tomorrow and hopefully I’ll be out there tomorrow.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersIn his 21 minutes on the floor, Ball was the center of attention in a matchup with the Mavericks’ Dennis Smith Jr., the No. 9 pick in last month’s draft.
