Following an exciting start to the trip, it has not been all sunshine and rainbows for the Ball Brothers in Lithuania.
The BC Vytautas duo of LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball combined for 33 points in a recent lopsided loss to Pieno Zvaigzdes, but their head coach, Virginijus Seskus, was not happy with the performance.
After the game, Seskus put the pair's defense on blast.
“I would not have played them due to their defense,” Seskus said, according to a translation, “but the game went a certain way so I played them. They are just trying to get steals, which won’t cut it.”
The coach was also reportedly unhappy with the brothers' trigger-happy tendencies, accounting for 26 of the team's 68 total shots off the bench.
