Lonzo Ball Had A Triple-Double Saturday Night, But Remained Cold From Deep

Lonzo Ball's second Summer League contest went much better, but there could be a looming issue.

Lonzo Ball rebounded from a miserable Summer League debut in his second game on Saturday night, posting a triple-double with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. But there is a troubling trend developing with the young star.

In short, he can't seem to find his stroke from deep.

Ball finished the night 5-of-13 overall, and just 1-of-5 from deep. Through two games, he's now just 2-of-16 from deep.

Ball did finish the game +6 during his time on the floor - so that's a positive. But in a league that's increasingly placing importance on long-range accuracy, he's going to need to figure this out.
