The stats came in a loss, though...

A couple of days after it was reported that LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball had their contract options picked up, they had a game against Lithuania's best team. They played really well.

Their team, Vytautas Prienu, suffered a 118-96 loss to Lithuanian Basketball League leaders Zalgiris Kaunas at Prienai Arena. LaMelo and LiAngelo put up some serious offensive stats, though.

LaMelo, still just 16 years old, scored 19 points and dished out six assists. LiAngelo scored 25 points, including six 3-pointers.

The loss dropped their team to 4-18 on the season. That's two games worse than any other team in the LBL.

Still, what LaMelo and LiAngelo have been able to do is really impressive. LaMelo, most notably, has proven to be an extremely capable player against guys significantly older than him.

"Let me remind the people that LaMelo Ball is 16 years old and is playing the BEST team in the LKL pro league, which has former NBA players on their roster right now. He's doing work against them by the way...," reports Fresh Sports Talk.

It's clearly been really entertaining to watch.

LaMelo and LiAngelo will be with the team through the rest of the season. Yahoo! Sports' Shams Charania reported this week that the team picked up their contract option, which will keep them in Lithuania through June.
