Nick Young was back from a one-game suspension on Sunday. Seeing as he hadn’t played in a game since Wednesday – he only played 11 minutes before getting kicked out for that scuffle with the Suns – you would hope that he’d have lots of energy to spark the team versus the Toronto Raptors despite the 10:00 AM Pacific Time tip-off.
Swaggy P did just that.
In 31 minutes on the floor, Young scored 29 points on 7-for-13 shooting, including 5-for-7 from downtown.
Young’s biggest shot of the night was this contested three-pointer that came with just 1:21 remaining in the game and pushed the Lakers’ lead to five en route to a 112-106 win across the border.
