One had to believe Brandon Jennings’ visit to the Staples Center would feature its fair share of entertainment. He’s from the Los Angeles area and chances are loads of family and friends were in attendance. His fast break alley-oop to Andre Drummond is exactly the sort of play to pull off when coming home to put on in front of your people.
Fresh off a Drummond steal of Steve Blake – who, to be fair, had 16 assists on the evening – BJ3 lobs a pass off the glass to reward the big man for running the floor. Truthfully, it’s just good to see a big-time dunk in Staples involving a Piston that didn’t result in getting powerbombed through the floor.
Unfortunately for Detroit, however, such a dope highlight failed to produce a victory. The Lakers closed to within two games of .500 (5-7) with a 114-99 laugher. Jordan Hill continued to impress leading the charge for Los Angeles posting 23 points and 14 rebounds; his third double-double in his past five games.
