Andre Ingram Scores 19 Points in NBA Debut

12 Апреля 2018

Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul led the praise for Andre Ingram after the 10-year G League veteran made his National Basketball Association debut for the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

It may not have had the fairytale ending of a win for the point guard on the night, as the Lakers lost 105-99 to the Rockets at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but he was still a shining star on the court which everyone appreciated. Ingram finished 6 for 8 from the field and 4 for 5 on 3-pointers along with three rebounds, three blocked shots and a steal.

Ingram will earn $13,824 for games against the Houston Rockets and L.A. Clippers to finish out the season, according to ESPN's Larry Coon - and one can argue he's already played his money's worth after a 19-point performance in his rookie debut.

Paul said of Ingram's debut to ESPN after the game: "I told him I heard about his story, and that grind is unbelievable".

"I wondered why those two big guys were back there", Ingram laughed after the surprise announcement as Lakers president Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka walked into the room.

"From the team warm-ups, the atmosphere was electric", he said. "Just an inspirational story".

Andre Ingram salutes the Los Angeles crowd in the Under Armour Curry 3. If not for a layup from fellow rookie Josh Hart with just 3:15 left in the game, Ingram would've led the Lakers in scoring. Ingram had flown his wife and two daughters in from Virginia to watch the culmination of their work.

"Everyone was like, 'Man, when you get it, just let it go, '" Ingram said. He is a career 46.1 percent shooter from the 3-point line. The Lakers signed Wear to a 10-day contract, which he parlayed into a second 10-day deal and then a remainder of season contract.
