WATCH: Lonzo Ball saves turnover, makes unreal behind-the-back pass

Matt Johnson

As everyone watched the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers duke it out on Friday night, Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball made a play that might have caused Lebron James to drop his wine glass.

Toward the end of the second quarter with the Lakers trying to increase their lead before halftime, disaster seemed imminent after the Clippers deflected a pass from Ball.

The 21-year-old somehow recovered it by tipping the ball away, diving for the ball and making a stunning behind-the-back dime to feed Tyson Chandler on a vicious slam dunk.

The breathtaking play got everyone at the Staples Center on their feet and going crazy as Ball delivered one of the best assists this entire season.

Ball turned a likely turnover and the potential for a halftime deficit into a stunning save and dime to extend the Lakers lead in a crucial battle against the rival Clippers.
