Nick Young basically stole a pass intended for Lou Williams to hit the game-winning 3-pointer to beat the Thunder 111-109 on Tuesday night in Los Angeles. It was very swaggy.
Young may have also traveled a little bit there, but it wasn’t called. So yes, these Lakers beat Russell Westbrook – who had 34 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds – and the Thunder.
After the Lakers won and confetti started falling at Staples Center, Young borrowed D’Angelo Russell’s “Ice in my veins” celebration to Russell’s amazement. As Jordan Clarkson told For The Win earlier this month, that whole Snapchat drama from last season is definitely over.
About that “stolen pass,” head coach Luke Walton had something hilarious to say about it.
And Swaggy P gave the most Swaggy P quote ever.
