No need to book Timofey Mozgov‘s spot in the dunk contest.
In the first quarter of the Lakers’ eventual loss to the Jazz, Mozgov got the ball back on a pick-and-roll, the lane opened up for him, so he drove in leaped, and… missed the dunk. Badly. When the Lakers tried to feed him the ball again on that possession, he fumbled it away. It was a future Shaqtin’ sequence.
The Russian big man has had a solid season for the Lakers, being what they expected (or at least should have expected) he would be — a big body in the paint who can defend, rebound, and get a few buckets. But this was not his finest moment.
