Ball recorded 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists and a steal across 28 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Nets.

Ball struggled from the field in this one and was particularly woeful from deep, ending a streak of five games in which he'd drained three or more treys. The 2017 first-round pick has scored in double digits in six straight games and dished out eight-plus assists four times in that stretch. This was far from his best showing, but it's undeniable that Ball has been trending in the right direction over the last few weeks.
