UPDATE (Feb. 25):

UPDATE (Feb. 05):

Ball scored 23 points (7-23 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 5-5 FT) and added 8 rebounds, 8 assists, and 5 steals in 40 minutes in Friday’s 118-112 loss to the Pistons.

Ball has continued to have shooting woes despite his normal statistical explosion. Over the previous 10 games, he shot 38.5% from the field.

After missing three games at the end of January due to injury, it is crucial that he has returned to full health and has upcoming games against the Magic and Wizards to regain his form.

UPDATE (Feb. 03):

Thursday night, the Chicago Bulls beat the Charlotte Hornets by a score of 114-98.

After getting a triple-double in Milwaukee on Tuesday night, LaMelo Ball added 19 points, eight rebounds, and six assists before being kicked out with 1:21 left.

After LaVine blocked his layup, he got mad and got two technical fouls for arguing with the referee, which got him kicked out of the game late.

UPDATE (Feb. 02):

Ball played all 40 minutes of the Hornets’ 124-115 loss to the Bucks on Tuesday. He finished with 27 points (10-26 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, 11 assists, three blocks, and three steals.

In the loss, Ball had his eighth triple-double of his career. He also had six steals and blocks. Even though Ball has hurt his ankle several times, he has been scoring more points as of late.

He is still getting better at what he does, especially in the last two months when he has shot less than 35% from the field. If he keeps up his current level of health, his career statistics show that he will soon reach a plateau.
