#NBATopShotThis: LaMelo spins into a 3-pointer
The highlight-reel plays just keep coming from Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball.
Late in the second quarter of their 114-104 win over the Toronto Raptors, he received the ball in the corner, faked out the flying defence of Norman Powell, effortlessly spinning his way to an open look, before knocking it down.

He finished with 23 points, nine rebounds and six assists as they climb to 19-18, good for sixth in the Eastern Conference.
Ball is quickly gaining momentum on the Top shot marketplace, with his highest sale at $40,000 (USD).
