Nick Young throws halfcourt alley-oop to Wesley Johnson, puts Lakers up 17 (!) on Warriors


I can’t say I saw this – the Lakers running circles around the best team in the NBA – coming, but perhaps Kobe Bryant sitting out helped.

Entering this game, the Lakers have been outscored by 11.1 points per 100 possessions with Kobe on the court (worse than the 76ers overall) and outscored opponents by 13.3 points per 100 possessions with him off the court (better than the Warriors overall).

Nick Young’s alley-oop to Wesley Johnson will only further that disparity (hat tip: gifdsports).
