.Stolen from reddit user u/rjnk68:

In his last 17 games since returning from injury:

"Lonzo Ball is averaging a career high 14.3 points/gm on 56.1% TS. He's shooting a career high 38.8% on a career high 7.7 three point attempts a game. His 2P% (49.1), FT% (74.1), eFG (54.9), and TS% (56.1) are all career high marks as well."


He just HAS to stay healthy.

I'm super impressed, and the best part isn't the recent numbers. He's playing with more poise and discipline on the court, which is something that was lacking in his Laker stints. His mental mistakes and errant fouls were always frustrating to watch.

I'm probably gonna jinx him, but he's living up to the #2 pick just because he's impacting both sides of the floor. He's playing like J. Kidd on defense. The perimeter defense w/ Josh Hart against the Celtics in that 24 point comeback was phenomenal.

To be honest, Lonzo is the exact kind of point guard the Lakers desperately need right now in terms of the role he'd play and fit with LeBron.

Anyway!! Lonzo Ball 16/6/4 with 2 steals tonight and Kemba Walker went 5-21

"Only 6 Players have attempted as many threes as Lonzo Ball across the last 9 games, and only Stephen Curry is shooting a better percentage (47.3% to Lonzo's 46%)"

He's playing very well.
He won't ever be the generational player hyped when was drafted, but currently looks like a legit NBA starter.

23/7/7 against Utah in a win. Boy's really getting consistent.

*edit* - 1 more assist to ice the game for 8. Thoroughly outplayed Donovan.

This season: 14 ppg, 39% 3's, 76% ft's, scoring on mid range shots moving right or left. He's becoming more aggressive, offensively. I'd sign him back asap, but the Lakers may not value him. He's 23 and still developing. He pushes pace like no other Lakers player and would limit Lebron's 18 second dribbling possessions.

I haven't been watching him for some time, but...wth? I have never seen such a confident Lonzo. Is this how he plays now, sometimes? Midrange game, going to the rim, shooting without hesitation? Laughing? I do

Lakers value him, but there’s no way to get him. We don’t have the assets to trade for him, and we can’t sign him. He’s a restricted FA, so even if by some miracle he decides to take a MASSIVE pay cut and sign for the lux tax MLE, the Pelicans would match that instantly and thank the Lakers for saving them probably about 15 million a year or so. Maybe he’ll be available in a few years when Lebron’s done, but for now it’s just nice to see Zo doing well along with most of the other baby Lakers, even if it’s on other teams.

Coach finally let Zion start with the early transition playmaking and it put Lonzo at his comfortable spot; limited playmaking, catch and shoot guy in the corner.

It's pretty much how he plays now. His finishing has improved too. I've seen him come off the screen to shoot a midrange more this season than probably his entire career combined to this point. Also seems to like bank shots from mid as well.

Zo's really done a lot to improve his game, his health was a big reason why he never was able to get it rolling. But since he's come back, over the last 22 games his stats have been

15.7 PPG
4.2 REB
5.5 AST
1.4 STL
0.5 BLK
44.9% Field Goal
43.1% Three Pointer (on 7.9 attempts)
83.3% Free Throw

While being solid defensively. There was a stat that also said that over this stretch of games the only player that has shot more threes than Zo and at a higher percentage has been just Steph Curry.

So he's been balling and playing with confidence, I want him to keep it up but he seems to be doing it well, and SVG has Zion do some playmaking too which allows Lonzo to attack off ball as well. Whatever SVG is doing so far is working in terms of getting Zo, BI and Zion playing as a oiled machine.

My gripe is that SVG has a tendency to pull guys when they get hot, but outside of that he's created a good base to build on. Now they and he just needs to build on it.
