Lakers veteran swingman Lance Stephenson has treated fans to a number of entertaining moments during the course of his career, and Tuesday’s game against the Wizards was no different.
Stephenson brought the fans to Staples Center to their feet on one particular play in the waning seconds of the first quarter, and it was incredibly fun to watch. He was tasked with handling the ball near the top of the key on the Lakers’ final possession of the quarter, guarded by Jeff Green. Stephenson used a number of jukes — dribbling the ball both between his legs and behind his back — to send Green backpedaling. The Wizards veteran was caught off balance and nearly fell to the floor in the process.
All Green could do was watch as Stephenson drained a midrange jumper. Not only that, the Lakers bench went nuts reacting to the highlight-reel play as well.
Stephenson is always entertaining when he steps foot on the court, and that play was the most recent example.
