Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball spoke to media following win against Luka Doncic and the Mavs.

LaMelo spoke on the Hornets chemistry and getting back to basketball.

“I’m definitely getting back to it”, LaMelo said. “We haven’t played basketball in a minute, so obviously it’s gonna take a little time getting used to it again. Pretty much I feel like as the games go on we’re getting more chemistry with eachother and stuff like that.”

In addition, LaMelo spoke on the Hornets’ ability going forward.

“It definitely feels good, and the difference, I feel like we locked in now, just playing defense. Pretty much, people starting to get their roles and stuff. Like I said, chemistry’s getting way better now.”

LaMelo also paid respect to Mavericks’ Luka Doncic.

“It was a great experience you know, he’s an amazing player. Definitely awesome, and I mean he came from overseeing playing like I did, so thats cool”

“Out there it’s a little slower paced and stuff like that”, LaMelo said on other leagues he played before the NBA. “But, at the end of the day, it’s just basketball”, he finished.
