LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball created buzz with their recent move to play pro basketball in Lithuanian. However, their official debut Saturday was overwhelmingly unimpressive.
The brothers were scoreless in Vytautas' 95-86 loss to Lietkabelis, and they spent the majority of their time on the bench.
LiAngelo logged nine minutes while LaMelo only played five and they missed all seven of their combined shot attempts, according to Sportando. The two also missed all five of their 3-point attempts.

The Ball brothers played in a Big Baller-sponsored showcase tournament Tuesday, which was orchestrated by their father Lavar Ball and is a five-game "friendly" series designed for second-tier teams, where they combined for 29 points.
Vytautas coach Virginijus Seskus told ESPN he wasn't sure how much the Ball brothers would be able to play in Lithuanian league games where competition was greater and the players were older.
