Lakers’ Ronnie Price sets up Wesley Johnson for huge slam (VIDEO)

While a lot of the attention after the Lakers game was on Kobe Bryant (26 points on 7-of-22 shooting… I expect a lot of nights like that from Kobe this season) he did not have the signature highlight from the Lakers preseason win.

That came courtesy Ronnie Price and Wesley Johnson.

Price picks the pocket of Utah guard Ian Clark and is off to the races. Johnson gets out and fills the middle lane and Price hits him with a sweet behind the back pass to set up the dunk over a charging Carrick Felix (I like the play from Felix, he hustled back and tried to make a play on the ball, he didn’t just watch the highlight happen).

We learned this last year with the Lakers — Wesley Johnson is at his best in transition.
