Lakers’ Brandon Ingram credits improved shooting to consistent work habits

first_imgEL SEGUNDO >> The reason seems as simple as Brandon Ingram’s mannerisms. As he experienced shooting slumps, the Lakers rookie forward worked in extra shooting sessions before practice and before games with assistant coach Brian Keefe. Ingram has also visited the Lakers practice facility late at night. During that time, the Lakers offered a similar message.“You’re not working for right now; you’re working for the future,” Ingram said of that message. “‘Everything we’re doing now will help in the long run.” Ingram still has shown some passiveness. After shooting an air ball in Tuesday’s loss to Denver, Ingram passed up a few open looks shortly afterward. “I did mess up on not taking those open shots. But shooters keep shooting,” Ingram said. “I definitely need to keep shooting and trusting myself. My teammates and coaches are definitely telling me to stay with it.” Injury updateAny movement forward Larry Nance Jr. made on the practice floor represented improvement after missing the past 16 games nursing a bone bruise in his left knee.Despite completing practices on Wednesday and Thursday without any reported setbacks, Nance will not play on Friday against Indiana. The Lakers plan to reevaluate Nance’s knee on Friday evening and provide an update on Saturday for his availability for Sunday’s game in Dallas.“If it was up to me, I wouldn’t have missed any time,” Nance said. “But I’m just happy to be nearing getting back out on the court.”What’s in a name?Whenever the two teammates banter with each other, Nance has often addressed rookie center Ivica Zubac without saying his actual name. That’s because Nance has formulated plenty of nicknames that are deemed too many to count. Nance shared a new one on Twitter by calling Zubac “Zu Alcindor” a play off of the former Lew Alcindor turned Kareem Abdul-Jabbar amid Zubac’s efforts to imitate his sky hook. Nance shared his other favorite nicknames for Zubac, named after Lakers teammates and other NBA players. They include: Kareem Abdul-Zabbar, Zuol Deng, Zulius Randle, Zwight Howard, Zu Williams and Zupac, in reference to late rapper, Tupac. Nance also teased Zubac for contending he did not play one-on-one this week because he was scared. “Isn’t it always a child’s job to talk trash to their dad?” Nance said. “I talk trash to my dad. He hasn’t beaten me. I haven’t beaten my dad. That’s how it goes.” Some of that work has already paid off. The Lakers (15-31) enter Friday’s game against the Indiana Pacers (22-19) at Staples Center with Ingram averaging 11.1 points on 46.8 percent shooting through 10 games this month, a sharp increase from his season average of 8.2 points on a 37.3 percent clip. “If you put in the work, your numbers will get better,” Lakers coach Luke Walton said. “It’s that simple. He continues to put in the work.”Walton has no plans to start Ingram other than for injury and rest purposes. Ingram might start for the second consecutive game since the Lakers listed Luol Deng as questionable with a sprained right wrist. Yet, Ingram has led the Lakers in minutes this season (1,285) and averages a league-leading 27.9 minutes per game among rookies (27.9). While that increased playing time has allowed Ingram to become more comfortable with his shot, it has also correlated with increased efficiency. “It’s been an adjustment with just floating around a little bit and being more aggressive,” Ingram said. “Coach has put me in the right position and I’m trying to thrive through it.” center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
