Tuesday night's game between the Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers didn't have much riding on it, but it was the most important game in the world for Andre Ingram. He scored 19 points on 6-of-8 shooting, including hitting 4-of-5 shots from three-point range.

With Ingram, Ball and Kyle Kuzma all sidelined by injuries, the Lakers were eager to bolster their depth for their last two games, and also have the benefit of delivering an unanticipated late-season, feel-good story.

"From the team warm-ups, the atmosphere was electric". "Just an inspirational story".

Ingram played 29 minutes off the bench and had a great game.

Ingram wasted no time sharing the news with his wife Marilee and told her to get on a plane and head to the City of Angels.

Randle said: "That's a testament to hard work, never giving up, and just sticking with it".

You stay on the grind and at the end of your 10th year, you finally get the call.

And that was just his first game. He has been with the Lakers the past six seasons. The G League's all-time leader in 3-pointers made quickly set about introducing the senior circuit to his ace skills from beyond the arc, nail four of five 3-point attempts. He didn't miss a single shot until the fourth quarter of the game. He once tutored teammates in math to make extra cash in the off-season.

The Lakers surprised the veteran point guard by moving up his "exit interview" from the G League's South Bay Lakers and having president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka on hand to congratulate him.

The Rockets are locked into the top seed in the Western Conference, but coach Mike D'Antoni still kept his regular starters and rotation.

Mbah a Moute averages 7.6 points and 3.1 rebounds while playing almost 26 minutes per game as a key rotation player.

Rockets: At the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday.
