Lonzo vs LaMelo, which of the two brothers is going to teach the other?

Battles between brothers are always something. Even more on an NBA field, even more when the two brothers play the same position. This Monday, Lonzo and LaMelo Ball will face each other on the floor of the United Center in a Bulls – Hornets duel that weighs quite a bit. And it is not LaVar who will say the opposite.

Because in the eyes of Daron Ball, it is probably the confrontation between the two best leaders of the current NBA. From the history of basketball itself. Even downright from the universe. But let’s go back to the real world for two minutes. Because reality is enough for us hyper. On the one hand, we have Lonzo who has made a rather exciting start to the season within an exciting Chicago team. Zo positively impacts the Bulls collective through his great progress in the shoot, his defense inspired by Jrue Holiday himself, and his pure playmaker qualities. No doubt, the investment of the Taureans in the offseason (80 million over four years) is justified without problem today. On the other, we have LaMelo, Rookie of the Year 2021 (sorry Ant-Man) and started on a big basis this year: 19.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, 8 assists and almost 2 steals per game, clearly the youngest of the Ball family is a hit to help his Hornets get to the top of the Eastern table. With 13 wins for 9 losses, the Hornets are today in the Top 6 of their conference, not nothing anyway. Just above ? The… Bulls, with a record of 13-8. Translation, tonight’s game will not only be a battle between the Ball brothers, but also a battle for a place in the Top 5 before heading into December. What to add a little spice to all that.

FYI, this will be the third confrontation between Lonzo and LaMelo since the latter’s arrival in the NBA at the 2020 Draft. The third after their countless duels on the field at the back of LaVar’s house, on the Chino Hills side near Los Angeles. And on the bulletin board, it looks everywhere for the moment.

Lonzo vs LaMelo, Game 1 January 8, 2021

  • Lonzo’s stats: 5 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 interception, 1 block, 2/8 shooting
  • LaMelo Stats: 12 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 interception, 4/11 shooting

The win for LaMelo

Lonzo vs LaMelo, Game 2 May 9, 2021

  • Lonzo Stats: 12 points, 3 rebounds, 6 assists, 4/14 shooting
  • LaMelo Stats: 22 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 10/19 shooting

The win for Lonzo

The big difference today is that Lonzo Ball obviously wears the Bulls jersey and no longer the Pelicans jersey. He has Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan or Nikola Vucevic by his side. With her new friends, Zo will want to teach her little brother and his crew a lesson, which is also not bad with Miles Bridges, Gordon Hayward and Terry Rozier. In short, the show should be there on the Chicago floor and we imagine that the two brothers have each circled this match in red on their calendar. So who will have the final say? Who will be able to house the other until the next clash scheduled for February 9 in Charlotte?

Answer tonight from 2 a.m. Lonzo vs LaMelo, Bulls vs Hornets, the fifth from the East against the sixth in a crazy atmosphere. You will have to be there, and not switch to horseback riding!
