Kendall Marshall really couldn’t have hoped for a better debut as a starter for the Los Angeles Lakers.

In 41 minutes on the floor, Marshall recorded a career-high 20 points, 15 assists (against just one turnover) and 6 rebounds in a win against the Utah Jazz.

As Dave McMenamin from ESPN Los Angeles notes, the 22-year-old guard scored five points in the game’s opening minute and dropped another five in the closing 60 seconds. Not bad for a guy who has only been on the team for two weeks and was seemingly stuck on the bench until both Xavier Henry and Jordan Farmar went down with injuries before the end of 2013.

Now, let’s just hope and pray that he stays healthy…
