LaMelo Ball stuns in Charlotte Hornets stellar show.


#When #LaMelo #Ball debuted last week, he left reason for concern.

The promising star scored zero points, and tripped over his own feet, grabbing the unwanted attention from #Basketball legend #Shaquille O’#Neal, who called his mishap out on #Twitter.

#However, the star who was the talk of the town preseason has hit back at critics with a brilliant display in his second NBA game against the #Dallas #Mavericks, scoring 20 points.

#Ball had 15 points, six rebounds and four assists in the first half alone to power #Charlotte’s offence.

#He also made an eight-year first, becoming the first #Hornets rookie to record at least 15 points, five rebounds, and five assists in a single game since #Kemba #Walker in 2012.

#Although he still has work to do on his defence, his confidence and aggression was enough to suggest he had shook off any doubts lingering from his scoreless debut.

#Charlotte #Hornets coach #James #Boreggo suggested last week that he was keen to give #Ball a bigger role in the team, seeing him play more minutes against the #Mavs.

The extended minutes allowed #Ball to get the 20 points, eight rebounds and five assists while shooting 80 per cent of 3s deep in the fourth quarter.

The #Hornets come up against the #Memphis #Grizzlies on #January 2.
