Andre Ingram Scores 19 Points in NBA Debut

Andre Ingram Scores 19 Points in NBA Debut

Kuzma (sprained ankle) was ruled out for Tuesday night's loss against Houston and is unlikely to play in Wednesday's season finale against the Los Angeles Clippers.

He even showed a little off-the-dribble pizzazz, evading a closeout and then hitting a pull-up jumper while getting fouled.

The drama of the moment - his moment - wasn't lost on Ingram.

"My story is endurance, the full story of it is", Ingram told the TNT crew after the game.

"Of course there were times of, 'I'm not sure if this day is going to happen or not, '" Ingram said of doubts that often crept in during his grind. "I wasn't hungry. I couldn't really sleep". But I didn't want to try to. "I suggested him, 'Rather a lot respect.' I indicate, 10 years grinding throughout the G League, to lastly get a risk and to play like that, it's pretty explicit". As quickly as we went out as a workers for warmups, I merely felt some electrical power in the marketplace. "You're playing a insane schedule, you're in small towns, and you're just constantly waiting for other people to think you're good enough". He sunk each of his three free throw attempts, four out of five three-point attempts and six out of eight field goal attempts, all at the ripe age of 32. That can get really mentally tough on people.

"It shows how mentally strong he is, how much he believes in himself and how much he loves the game".

Lakers teammate Isaiah Thomas and Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin - who might be the poster child for players who've emerged from the NBA's minor league and made an unforgettable National Basketball Association debut - were among several National Basketball Association players who took note of Ingram's "impressive" night.

After all, he is 384 games into a career which, until now, had been mostly spent in the G-League, the NBA's minor league. If ever a man wanted to convince his employer that they made the right decision in hiring him, Ingram left no room for doubt.
