PHILADELPHIA — Lonzo Ball drove the baseline Thursday night.
The Los Angeles Lakers rookie found Brandon Ingram open on the perimeter for a 3-pointer.
Ingram sank the shot to stun 76ers fans and cause Ball’s father, LaVar, to celebrate in a luxury suite.
The Lakers beat Philadelphia 107-104 at the sold-out Wells Fargo Center.
Ingram led the Lakers with 21 points. Joel Embiid scored 33 points and blocked five shots for the 76ers. Ben Simmons had a triple-double with 12 points, 13 rebounds and 15 assists.
PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia 76ers traded Jahlil Okafor on Thursday night.
Sixers fans booed Ball (10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists) every time he touched the ball. LaVar Ball stood in a suite during the fourth quarter and taunted the crowd by cupping his ear with his hand and urging them to boo louder.
With their flair for self-promotion, the Balls are a controversial basketball family.
Philadelphia appeared poised for a dramatic victory.
The 76ers trailed by 15 points with 11 minutes, 15 seconds left. But reserve center Richaun Holmes sparked a comeback with 10 fourth-quarter points. His dunk with 2:22 left tied the game at 101-101 as the fans roared.
Embiid sank two foul shots with 39 seconds left to tie the game.
The 76ers are in a funk.
All they face in their next game is the NBA’s hottest team.
Philadelphia ( 13-11 ) has lost two straight and three of its last four games. The 76ers begin a three-game road trip in Cleveland against Lebron James and the Cavaliers on Saturday night. The Cavaliers have won 13 straight, the NBA’s current longest winning streak.
