Despite having their lead trimmed to just four points during the fourth quarter, the Lakers weren’t going to allow the Utah Jazz to comeback and push their losing streak to seven games.

The effort that was put forth by the team last night was evident in the highlight video below, where Jodie Meeks dives on the loose ball and somehow pushes it ahead to Nick Young who gathers and gets out on the break – and this was all happening while the Jazz were trying to foul in order to stop the game.

Utah finally got their foul when Gordon Hayward caught up with Young, but it was too late: by that time, Swaggy P was already in mid-flight and finished off the play with a thunderous slam.
