  WATCH: LaVar Ball meets fans who have his face tattooed on them LaVar Ball met two Vytautas fans who have his face tattooed on them and was incredibly excited about it.As Martin pointed out, these two are basketball fanatics with roots from Latvia and Lithuania. Most importantly, they apparently really, really love LaVar Ball.

With LaMelo Ball resting due to a back injury and an illness, and LiAngelo Ball spending much of the fourth quarter on the bench next to him, BC Vytautas staged a gutsy comeback from a 20-point deficit, only to come up short in the end to Alytaus Dzukija , 82-79, at Alytus Arena on Monday.

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball ’s arrival with Prienu Vytautas has been a boon to the fledgling Lithuanian club’s financial health, but a burden in many ways The two took off to Barcelona for vacation between Vytautas ’ LKL games on March 10 (a loss to Neptunas) and March 19 (a date with Alytaus Dzukija ).

At long last, Prienu Vytautas appears to have found a winning formula with the Ball brothers in Lithuanian (LKL) League play. For the second time this week, head coach Virginijus Seskus gave LiAngelo Ball modest minutes off the bench, did not play LaMelo Ball at all and saw his last-place squad beat another bottom feeder, this time in a 74-63 win over Alytaus Dzukija at Prienai Arena with LaVar Ball looking on.

Gelo fired up nearly a shot per minute, scoring six points on 3-of-11 shooting (0-of-5 from three) in 10:58 off the bench. The 2018 NBA draft entrant added one rebound and one block. And though he had a solid night defensively, he finished with a minus-10 in plus-minus rating.

He’s been particularly prolific against Vytautas , averaging 19.5 points on 63 .6 percent shooting (70.0 percent from three). 74 shares.

LiAngelo Ball and Justas Sinica helped Vytautas battle back from a 19-point deficit, but without four guard out—including LaMelo Ball —the visitors ran out of fuel down the stretch of a 73-65 loss to Neptunas at Svyturys Thanks for signing up. You'll be waking up a little more awesome tomorrow.

Melo, meanwhile, once again spent the entire time tethered to the bench, depriving his fans of a chance to see how his fresh haircut holds up in live action.

Vytautas fared just fine with minimal contributions from the Big Baller Brand reps. The home team led by as many as 21 points in the third before fending off a fourth-quarter run that saw Dzukija narrow the gap to six points.

After a three-day break, Vytautas will look to continue its late-season climb out of the LKL basement with a visit to Utena Arena to face Juventus on Thursday.
