Friday marked the start of the NBA Summer League Las Vegas action with multiple teams in action. Some of those teams recently drafted top 10 prospects in the NBA Draft. That included the Los Angeles Lakers who debuted their young basketball star Lonzo Ball Friday. The Lakers took on the Clippers in their first Vegas Summer League game. While the team came up on the losing end, several of the young stars showed their stuff in this matchup. Here's the latest on Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram's performances.

Brandom Ingram show

For the Los Angeles Lakers, it may have been Lonzo Ball's big debut, but sophomore star Brandon Ingram was the star for the purple and gold.

Ingram had a huge night, as he shot 9-for-17 from the field and finished with a team-high 26 points. He also recorded three assists, three steals and two blocks for the night. One of his big highlights came courtesy of Lonzo Ball who found him early on for a sweet alley-oop dunk play.

The play won't go down as Lonzo Ball's first regular season assists, but it will be his first assist for the NBA Summer League games. Ball didn't finish with the best of nights though as he shot just 2-for-15 from the floor and had a total of five points for the game.

The former UCLA star also had five assists, four rebounds, and two steals, along with a block and three turnovers.

Late in the overtime session, he jacked up two three-pointers that both clanked off the rim, failing to tie up the score for another session.

The Los Angeles Clippers ended up with the win 96-93 thanks to 26 points from guard Sam Thornwell and 23 points from Bryce Johnson. The forward Johnson shot 10-for-15 and also snatched seven boards.

Teammate Kendall Marshall ended up with a double-double, recording 11 points and 11 rebounds for the night.

Ball's next game

With ESPN televising the NBA Summer League debut of Lonzo Ball, they'll also provide a live telecast for his next outing. That comes on Saturday night when he will have an interesting matchup against the Boston Celtics and fans may see Ball going against No.

3 draft pick Jayson Tatum. The Celtics' top pick participated in the Summer League games in Utah just recently and already had a showdown against Philadelphia's No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz.

The L.A. Lakers vs. Boston Celtics game is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time on ESPN for television viewers, or WatchESPN for the live streaming online feed. Will Lonzo Ball have a bounce back performance in the next game?
