The Ball brothers combined for a total of 29 points, older brother, LiAngelo Ball scores 19 points and baby brother, LaMelo Ball, managed to put up 10 points on the team’s 90-80 victory over Zalgiri.
According to ESPN,
LiAngelo started and struggled with his shot in the first half, making just 2 of 9 shots before the break. He was far more efficient coming off the bench in the second half, finishing 8-for-19 from the field, while playing much of the time with his 16-year-old brother on the floor.

LaMelo came off the bench in the first half and didn’t waste any time before misfiring on a 3-pointer from NBA range and getting a few assists, including one to his brother
“I did all right,” LiAngelo said. “I’m glad we won, but I could do better.”
“Not a lot,” LaMelo said. “Just another game to me. My shooting was off, but we won. That was the main thing.”
The brothers next match up is set for Saturday in a Lithuanian league contest at Lietkabelis.
