Ball Brothers Held Scoreless in Loss Against First Real Pro Team, But See How It Was Still a Win For LaVar (Video)

In their first REAL pro game in the top division of the Lithuanian basketball league, LiAngelo & LaMelo Ball’s Prienu Vytautas was beaten 95-86 by BC Lietkabelis; last year’s league championship runner-up.

Against what was a steep jump in talent from the teenage-laden Zalgiris reserve team they beat Tuesday in the BIG BALLER CHALLENGE; the Ball brothers were held scoreless in Saturday’s loss. They also played fewer minutes because the team was feverishly trying to come back & chose to roll with veteran players:

Via, Bleacher Report:

The loss drops Vytautas to an overall record of 4-15 while going 1-1 with the Ball boys playing. But, as we know, the season is less about wins/losses & more about eyes on the Ball brothers & LaVar.

Even though the team lost, LaVar still wins.

He was the halftime entertainment (which will likely be an every-game occurrence in some form), & with the team down 13 points, he took the court to pretty loud applause in what looks to be a packed house:

LiAngelo, LaMelo & Vytautas will look to have a better outing Monday when they face Lietuvos Rytas, another reserve squad, as part of the Big Baller Challenge.
