A trio of teenagers were the story of the summer league contest between the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, which finished 96-93 in overtime in favor of the Clippers.

Though Lonzo Ball dominated headlines coming in, second-year pro Brandon Ingram and the 42nd overall pick in this year's draft Thomas Bryant filled up the stat sheet.

Ingram was the Lakers' top scorer, dropping 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting.

Ball, on the other hand, couldn't buy a basket. The UCLA product was a horrid 1-of-11 from 3-point range and finished with just five points on the night. The lone basket Ball made in the first half came on a putback attempt.

Bryant, a 19-year-old forward out of Indiana, finished with 13 points and five rebounds in just 17 minutes.

Along with his modest five points, Ball tallied five assists, four rebounds, and two steals in 32 minutes.

In essence, Ball's night was all down hill after he came out launching a beautiful alley-oop pass to Ingram for the opening basket of the game and his first assist as a Laker.

The Lakers' next summer league game is Saturday against the Boston Celtics and third overall pick Jayson Tatum.
