It’s not pretty, but Brandon Ingram forces OT with bucket vs. Wizards (VIDEO)


LOS ANGELES — Down two to the Wizards with 8.2 seconds left, the Lakers gave the ball to one of their No. 2 picks.

Not that one, it was a set play Brandon Ingram isolation.

Which was an odd call — Ingram may have had 9 fourth-quarter points in the game, but he is shooting 20 percent on isolation chances coming into Wednesday night (and he’s taken a fair amount of them).

Ingram’s drive and shot were flat-out ugly — but when you have long arms for tip-ins, you can get away with it.

The Wizards’ Bradley Beal missed a shot at the other end the game went to overtime.

In OT the Lakers shared the ball, John Wall went 1-of-5 in the frame, and the Lakers got the upset win 102-99.
