Ball had an electric rookie season, and he helped the Hornets secure a spot in the play-in tournament. After becoming a full-time starter in February, he averaged 18.1 points, 6.2 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 31.2 minutes. He had two 30-point games and six games with double-digit assists, plus one triple-double.
