Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball struggled in his NBA debut on Thursday but looked like a completely different player in a dominating performance on Friday. Ball will try to establish some consistency and lead the Lakers to back-to-back wins when they host the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday.

Ball was held to three points on 1-of-6 shooting in his debut while going up against a first-team All-Defense player in Clippers guard Patrick Beverley, but he had no trouble against the Phoenix Suns while putting up 29 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists on Friday.

"I know everybody is going to say everything game by game, so if I play bad on Sunday, it is going to go right back to he's a bust," Ball told reporters.

"It doesn't matter to me, I just come out and play as hard as I can to get my team wins." The Pelicans are playing as hard as they can but have yet to find their way into the win column despite taking the defending champion Golden State Warriors down to the wire on Friday.

Bovada has the Pelicans listed as 4-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 222½ according to MyBookie.ag
