Kiwi point guard Corey Webster seemed like he was going to be the game changer for the Dallas Mavericks against the LA Lakers, as his side began to mount a comeback in the final quarter of their NBA Summer League semi-final yesterday.
But the class of first round second pick of the NBA draft Lonzo Ball and his Lakers teammates, was too much for Webster and his team to handle as they went down 108-98.
Webster helped his side reduce the Lakers' 25 point lead in the second quarter to single digits (96-95), with two minutes and 16 seconds remaining in the game.
The 28-year-old former New Zealand Breaker scored five points, three rebounds, three assists and one steal in the match after playing 24 minutes off the bench.
He will most likely look at opportunities to play basketball in Europe he's not drafted into a NBA side.
