Ball was seen pounding the floor before getting up and heading to the locker room.

The 30 missed three-pointers is a season high and also the worst percentage in Lakers history when the team has shot attempted more than 30 three-pointers. Ball sprained his ankle in LA's loss at Denver on Tuesday, but made good on his vow to play through it. ... "But he wanted to give it a go".

However, he will probably be sidelined at least another week or two, as he was given a 4-5 week timetable to return.

The Pacers were almost as dominating in the second quarter as the Lakers were in the first, outscoring Los Angeles 35-18 while going 6 of 10 from 3-point range, while the Lakers were 0 of 6 from long distance in the quarter.
