Nick Young Scores 41 Points (w/video)


Watch how Nick Young scores.  There is no outstanding quickness, no great vertical leap, and no spectacular finishes at the basket.  There is plenty of isolation play, curls, pick and roll play, and catch and shoot situations.

It may just be a preview of things to come.  Not in regards to seeing Nick Young in a Laker uniform, but what Kobe Bryant can provide in terms of scoring after he has healed.

Nick Young had great shooting touch on the ball and great elevation.  If Kobe can get the same elevation, there’s no reason why he couldn’t be a strong 20+ point per game scorer next season.

That may be Nick Young’s best encore performance in a Laker uniform.  It is fitting that he would close out a road game in such a shooting fury.
