LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball made the professional debut the other night for the Lithuanian Team Prienai Vytautas. The 2 brother combined for 29 pts, 19 pts for LiAngelo and 10 pts for LaMelo. The 2 helped lead Prienai Vytautas to a 90-80 victory over Zalgiris’ second team.

After the game the brother were asked how they thought they did in a interview “I did all right,” LiAngelo said. “I’m glad we won, but I could do better.” “I think I passed, led and played defense well,” LaMelo said. “My shooting was off, but we won. That was the main thing. LaMelo was also asked if there was a difference playing in Lithuania versus the states “Not a lot,” LaMelo said. “Just another game to me.”

The team’s next game is Saturday night in a Lithuanian league contest at Lietkabelis, but it’s unsure how much playing time the LiAngelo and LaMelo will receive since the game counts in the standings.
