Brandon Ingram's clutch three in Philadelphia ends Lakers losing streak

It was the same story again this time around as Embiid finished with 33 points, seven rebounds and six assists in 36 minutes. Simmons came up a rebound shy of a triple-double and added five steals in a 115-109 win at Los Angeles on November 15 while Ball was held to two points on 1-of-9 shooting and two assists in 21 minutes.

In terms of game flow, the Lakers took an early lead and led by as many as 16 points on the night and even held a 15-point lead in the fourth quarter. The last time these two teams faced off against each other, Joel Embiid thoroughly dominated the Lakers.

Both Lakers-76ers games this season - featuring some of the NBA's best young talent - have been incredible.

For the Lakers, Brandon Ingram starred with 21 points, including the game-clinching three-pointer, while much-hyped guard Lonzo Ball had 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, including dishing to Ingram for the match-winner. Sixers rising star rookie Ben Simmons, who had his third triple-double of the season, had 12 points, a game-high 15 assists, 13 boards and one blocked shot. Ball did not get to play against top pick Markelle Fultz because of Fultz's shoulder injury. Ball was so disappointed in his play, he went to the team's practice facility hours after that game to shoot instead of doing his usual post home game routine of re-watching the game.

PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia 76ers traded Jahlil Okafor on Thursday night. Booed in the first half nearly every time he touched the ball, Ball flirted with his third career triple-double.

Despite the loss, Simmons became the fastest rookie since Lamar Odom in 1999-2000 to reach three career triple-doubles in 23 games or less.
