A day after he had his best game of the summer, former Terps guard Melo Trimble had one of his worst for the Philadelphia 76ers in a 103-102 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers and No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball late Wednesday.
Trimble, who had 13 points in 13 minutes Tuesday night against the Boston Celtics in the Las Vegas Summer League, played just six minutes against the Lakers Wednesday. He was 0-of-2 from the field with two turnovers and two personal fouls.
Meanwhile, Ball had 36 points in 36 minutes to lead the Lakers to victory. He was 12-of-22 from the field, but just 3-of-10 from three-point range. He also had 11 assists, eight rebounds, five steals and six turnovers.
The Sixers were led by forward FurkanKorkmaz’s 19 points.
Philadelphia, 1-3 in Las Vegas, will face the Chicago Bulls on Friday.
