Chris Paul tweets congratulations to Lakers' Andre Ingram on National Basketball Association debut

Like I said [to myself], 'Make the free throw, make the free throw, make the free throw'. "10 years grinding in the G League, finally get an opportunity and to play like that, that's pretty special".

Ingram likely will feature for the Lakers on Tuesday night when they face the Los Angeles Clippers in their season finale.

And by Tuesday night, the man who boasts a 48 percent shooting average was raining down threes on the Houston Rockets. "All the players, all the coaches". "It was insane. To see that first one go in, I felt great". He also had three blocks and one steal, with his opening game prompting Lakers fans to shower him with chants of "MVP". But that didn't stop Ingram, watched by his wife and kids, enjoying the experience.

Paul, like many others, was in awe of Ingram's inspirational story, which went viral Monday. "He belonged out there".

Randle said: "That's a testament to hard work, never giving up, and just sticking with it".

Gerald Green scored 16 points as Houston hung on late to avoid its first back-to-back losses since January 6.

As many as 16 runs were leaked in the final over by Karnataka pacer Vinay Kumar who had a forgettable comeback for KKR . Newly-formed Kolkata Knight Rider will start their campaign under a completely new captain , Dinesh Karthik .

And that was just his first game. He provided a spark as the Lakers attempted a comeback in the fourth quarter, which ultimately fell short. He re-injured the joint without contact, heading immediately to the locker room. For his two-game contract with the Lakers, he'll make just over $13,000, 50% of a full season G League salary. Ball (knee contusion) and Ingram (concussion) are not expected to return this season.

The 32-year-old is the all-time leader in the G-League in 3-pointers made, and is second in that league in games played.

Ingram finished his National Basketball Association debut with 19 points on 6-of-8 shooting and 4-of-5 from beyond the arc. He once tutored teammates in math to make extra cash in the off-season. Jeremy Lin tweeted that Ingram was "too good" as he scored 11 points in his first six minutes of play.

Rockets: At the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday.

"I think it's less (serious) than last time, but I don't know", D'Antoni said.
