LiAngelo & LaMelo Ball Combine for 29 Points In Lithuania Debut

Big Baller Brand Referees LiAngelo & LaMelo Ball 1st Pro Game in Lithuania (Live Stream)

LaMelo Ball and LiAngelo Ball combined for 29 points to lead BC Vytautas to an 90-80 victory over BC Zalgiris in the inaugural Big Baller Brand Challenge. And SB Nation reported 1.6 million viewers tuned in to catch it.

Prienu Vytautas had to drop out of the Baltic Basketball League in order to make time for the games, which will allow the Ball brothers to get more playing time with the team.

They were not balling on the biggest stage, but LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball were on brand in their professional debuts Tuesday in Lithuanian. ESPN's Mike Schmitz, who was in attendance, described Jokubaitis as "the top National Basketball Association prospect in the game" and contrasted the Lithuanian player's diligently honed skills with those of LaMelo Ball, who "plays a somewhat wild style and defense-free game".

Instagram allowing some folks to post their Stories on WhatsApp
There are a few reasons why Facebook may be interested in making Instagram Stories more shareable, and specifically on WhatsApp . Facebook recently let users share their Facebook Stories to Instagram , now the firm might let WhatsApp do the same thing.


Here is a look at his first shot, a 30-foot pull-up three-pointer in transition that was off the mark. Lavar will get to sell more shoes, and LiAngelo and LaMelo will get a chance to see where they stack up against other potential prospects their own age. The company's logo was everywhere, including on the jerseys worn by the referees. "People back home get to watch it". While he is a creative and instinctual facilitator off the dribble, he committed six turnovers largely because he will always try for the spectacular pass instead of the simple one.

While 19-year-old LiAngelo isn't considered almost as intriguing a prospect as LaMelo, he had a few memorable moments in his professional debut as well.

There were some humbling misses too from LiAngelo though, from a turnaround jumper that missed the rim altogether on his first shot of the game to a botched second-quarter transition layup with no one contesting it. LiAngelo was also a non-factor on the glass and a step slow defensively when trying to stay in front of Zalgiris' guards and forwards. LaMelo chipped in with 10 points.

Wouldn't surprise me if 17-year-old Zalgiris PG Rokas Jokubaitis becomes the best National Basketball Association player out of this game. LiAngelo meanwhile made some threes and looked okay, but again he was playing against younger kids.
