NBA Twitter reacts to LaMelo Ball’s incredible highlight with Miles Bridges during the split against the Magic
LaMelo Ball seems to be popping more with each passing game for the Hornets.
Despite the team’s 116-109 loss to the Orlando Magic, Melo put up an impressive 23 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 3 steals, shooting 44.4% from the field and 42.9% from the arc.
But it wasn’t all just numbers. While his 8 assists looked good without context, let’s just say one of them was quite striking. And as you might expect with the popularity of a player like Ball, NBA Twitter just can’t stop going crazy for it.
Let’s go inside, shall we?

We still can’t believe this only counts for 1 assist.
