The Los Angeles Lakers have really been playing some nice basketball as of late. Currently on a five-game winning streak, they've won seven of their last 10 games, and have the 10th-best record (17-10) since the start of 2018. It's too little, too late in terms of making the playoffs, but they've been a pleasant surprise. And speaking of surprises, it might be time to start paying attention to Lonzo Ball's 3-point shot. Historically bad at the start of his rookie season -- he shot 24 percent from downtown in November -- Ball has turned things around since returning from a knee injury that kept him out for a month. Against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night, Ball went 6 of 10 from downtown, setting a new career-high for 3-pointers in a game. More impressive, however, was that he made three of those triples in the final three minutes, including two go-ahead 3-pointers in the final 80 seconds.
Don't look now, but the Lakers' Lonzo Ball is shooting the lights out from 3-point land
