Andre Ingram has dream National Basketball Association debut

Ingram made his National Basketball Association debut for the Lakers after 384 games over a full decade in the developmental G League, including parts of the past six years with the Lakers' affiliate. "But to a man, everyone was like, 'When you get it, just let it go!' All the players, all the coaches". Ingram also grabbed three rebounds, handed out one assist, and snatched one steal.

With Los Angeles without the services of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma against Houston, the opportunity presented itself for Andre Ingram to get some playing time with the Lakers. He is the G-League all-time leader in three-pointers with 713 and boasts a career of average of 46.4 percent for field goals and 46.1 percent for three pointers.

Ingram's Lakers teammates in Brook Lopez and Julius Randle were just as impressed.

In fact, toward the end of the game, the crowd began chanting "MVP" at Ingram - who later called the whole thing a "once in a lifetime" experience.

His four three-pointers broke a record for the most on debut by a Laker, while his 19 points were the best by a first-gamer since Nick Van Exel's 23 in 1993. Ingram's wife and two daughters were there to watch his debut, which he killed it in.

"I just felt some electricity out there", Ingram said, per Ty Nowell of Lakers.com.

Rockets: Ryan Anderson missed his third straight game with a sprained left ankle. His recent season with the South Bay Lakers was his 10th in the G-League. In his 10 seasons, he has never shot below 40.3 percent in a season.

Andre Ingram is making the most of his license to shoot the lights out. Houston then took a potentially important hit when Mbah a Moute dislocated his shoulder for the second time this season while dunking in the second quarter.
