James Borrego Calls LaMelo Ball Return 'A Breath Of Fresh Air' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun May 2, 2021 5:20 am

LaMelo Ball made his return to the Charlotte Hornets lineup after six weeks in a 107-84 win over the Detroit Pistons.


Ball finished with 11 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds in the game. 


Ball's play included an underhanded assist to Miles Bridges.


"It kind of felt normal, I'm not even going to lie to you ... When we was young, it was pretty much passes like that every play," said Ball of the pass.


James Borrego said he wasn't surprised by Ball's quick return considering his overall feel for the game.


"You never know how someone is going to respond off that [much] time off. If there is a guy that can maybe come back and not miss a beat, it's Melo. He just has that instinct, that feel. That didn't quite surprise me," said Borrego afterwards.


The Hornets are currently the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
