NEW YORK (AP) LaMelo Ball had a good first three quarters in Brooklyn, then decided it was best if he watched the fourth.

Ish Smith was rolling so well that the Rookie of the Year told Charlotte coach James Borrego to stick with this backup.

"That's big. That just shows where our growth is," forward Miles Bridges said. "As long as he's being mature and we're all being mature, we're going to keep winning."
