When JaVale McGee is focused and in the game mentally — and he was against the Lakers Sunday night — few people on the planet could keep him from a rebound and putback dunk.
That includes Kosta Koufos and Andre Miller. Who happen to be McGee’s teammates and were in the way of a putback dunk against the Lakers and ended up in McGee’s poster. McGee finished with 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting on the night. In the second half he completely outplayed Pau Gasol (which a lot of people have been doing lately, but still).
McGee has more nights like this and Karl will give him more run.
