Ingram scored 21 points (7-21 FG, 2-3 3PT, 5-10 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, six assists and one block in 38 minutes in Thursday's 107-104 win against Philadelphia.
While Ingram was not especially efficient from the floor on Thursday, the forward did sink the game-winning three-pointer with 0.8 seconds to go against Philadelphia. Shooting a career-best 45.4 percent this season, his struggles from the floor on Thursday were the first time he shot below 46 percent in his last eight games. However, Ingram is taking on a larger part of the Lakers' offense, shooting an average of 13.2 shots per game versus 8.7 shots in his rookie season. Thursday's 21 shots were tied for the most he has shot in a single game this season. Overall, Ingram is taking command of the offense by shooting more often and with more efficiency.
Ingram scored 18 points (7-16 FG, 0-1 3PT, 4-6 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, five assists and one steal over 37 minutes in Sunday's 118-95 loss to Houston.
With an increased presence in the offense, Ingram has been able to flourish, averaging 16.0 points per game on 46.3 percent from the floor for the season. Over his last five games, the forward is averaging 19.8 points on 51.8 percent shooting on an average of 13.8 shots per game. Ingram has carved out a larger niche for himself in the Lakers' offense, averaging 12.9 shots per game compared to 8.7 shots last year.
Ingram accounted for 20 points (6-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT), four rebounds, and one steal in 27 minutes Saturday in Los Angeles' loss to Denver.
Ingram's game has improved considerably as he works through his sophomore season. His shooting numbers have improved across the board. Ingram is shooting 46-percent from the field, 31-percent from deep, and 68-percent from the line on 12.7 field-goal attempts per game. Compare that to his rookie season, where he posted 40-percent from the field, 29-percent from three, and 62-percent from the line on 8.7 field-goal attempts per game. Ingram's offensive ceiling makes him an intriguing fantasy option, and if his career continues to trend in this direction, he should reach that ceiling.
Ingram tallied 32 points (12-21 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five assists, four rebounds and four steals across 44 minutes in Wednesday's 127-123 loss to the Warrriors.
Wednesday's 32 points was a career-high for Ingram, who's been on a tear recently. He was averaging 17 points and 6.7 rebounds in the six games leading up to Wednesday's game. It's sometimes hard to remember that Ingram is still a teenager because compared to the rest of this young team, his two-year career in LA makes him feel like a veteran. While a lot of the attention is piled on the rookie play of Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma, Ingram is equally instrumental in the team's future prospects.
Ingram offered 26 points (11-18 FG, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 40 minutes in Wednesday's 115-109 loss to the Sixers.
Ingram's scoring and rebounding totals both were team highs, and he tied Kyle Kuzma for most shot attempts among the starters. The explosion brought the second-year forward out of a two-game shooting slump, one that had seen him go just 4-for-19 from the field over the previous pair of contests. Ingram has shown improvement across the board this season, and even his recent struggles have been a relative rarity-- factoring in Wednesday's production, Ingram has improved his scoring average by more than five points per game (9.4 to 15.7) and boosted his shooting percentage from 40.2 to 45.4.
