Here are the Top 5 Lakers plays for the month of March.
5. Jeremy Lin Outplays Opposing Defender
The Lakers battled their Western Conference rivals, the Utah Jazz, at home on March 19. The Jazz have struggled in purgatory for years, while Laker fans have witnessed their fair share of blowouts at home this season.
Surprisingly, the Lakers kept it close for the majority of the game despite Jeremy Lin going just 1-for-8 from the field.
Still, Jeremy’s only basket of the night was pretty slick.
4. Jordan Clarkson’s Big Slam
This rookie phenomenon consistently makes opposing defenders look silly. Clarkson’s superman dunk captures the beauty of basketball. This dunk is so good you’ll find yourself watching it twice.
3. Jabari Brown Secures Two-Year Deal
This wasn’t just one play by Jabari Brown, but a series of plays that helped him earn a two-year deal with the Lakers.
While playing on the last night of his second 10-day contract, the rookie went off for 22 points against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Then, just hours later, Brown was inked to a two-year contract with the purple and gold. Not bad.
2. Jordan Clarkson Hits Game-Winning Free Throws In Minny
Clarkson has been great this season, even in clutch situations.
In overtime against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Clarkson followed up Wayne Ellington’s miss and was fouled by Zach LaVine. The Missouri product then knocked down two free throws to seal the win for the purple and gold.
1. Jeremy Lin Hustles Back, Blocks Draymond Green
Jeremy Lin is an underrated defender, and this play definitely showcases that.
In a game against the Golden State Warriors, Lin was able to hustle back and block Draymond Green, a Defensive Player of the Year candidate, before he was able to get up and finish off with the slam.
