Kent Bazemore has shown that he can score the ball since he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers last month.
However, that isn’t particularly the reason that the purple and gold made a move for the 24-year-old on the eve of the 2014 trade deadline.
The main reason the Lakers traded for Bazemore was due to his athleticism and ability of the defensive end, and the sophomore player reminded fans tonight that he can still cause havoc on D and can finish on the other end, too.
In tonight’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, Bazemore did a fantastic job of stealing the ball from the reliable hands of Tony Parker and then raced up the court to finish off the play with the slam.
Bazemore is averaging 14.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.2 steals in 12 games so far with the Lakers.
