During the first quarter at Staples Center, Lonzo Ball emulated his NBA idol with a chasedown block on Denver's Gary Harris.

The Lakers turned that sequence into a five-point swing, thanks to a Kentavious Caldwell-Pope pass to Brook Lopez for three.

That come-from-behind play was no surprise for Zo. Coming into the evening, the Crown Prince of Chino Hills ranked seventh among rookies in blocks (0.8 per game), according to NBA.com.
