So Ryan turned to delivering food around his hometown through DoorDash. That was life for the 25-year-old: Long before he was with the Celtics on a two-way contract, he was just trying to keep his basketball career afloat.

In the offseason the Lakers signed Ryan to help with their shooting and he delivered on Tuesday night.

Late in the Pelicans-Lakers game, Ryan hit an incredible game-tying 3-pointer that forced the game to overtime and helped lead the Lakers to a much-needed win.
