Lonzo Ball (calf) hopes to play in Summer League final
Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, who left Sunday’s summer league semifinal win over the Mavericks with tightness in his right calf, hopes to play in Monday’s championship in Las Vegas.
The No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft says he’ll receive treatment leading up to the title game against the Trail Blazers, the Lakers’ fifth game in six nights.
“I don’t know, I’ve played in a lot of big games man,” James said. “I don’t … I’m the last person to ask about a big game in the regular season. I’m sorry.”
He continued: “Taking nothing from them, they’ve been playing Cheap Dream Team Jerseys some great ball, but like I said, I’m not one to get caught up in regular-season big games. I’m sorry. I’ve been to six straight [NBA] Finals, man. I’m the last person to ask about a regular-season game, dude. Sorry.”
Whether James is hyped or not, he realizes this is an Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys important game. After some recent struggles, the Cavs are finally playing well again as they are riding a three-game winning streak, their first since late February.
This could also be James just playing with the Celtics considering Isaiah Thomas made similar comments earlier in the day.
“It’s just another game,” Thomas said. “I think we’ve got to treat it like that. I mean, being No. 1 in the standings, you don’t feel different. I don’t, at least. I’m treating it like another game.”
