Steve Blake and Wesley Johnson connect on a couple of lobs (Video)


Steve Blake has been great for the Lakers. Wesley Johnson has been up and down, but he was all up against the Pistons last night. Johnson is a great athlete that hasn’t lived up to his lottery pick status, but he is getting his chance in Los Angeles. As you can see from the video above, Johnson can fly, and Steve Blake can throw lobs well.

They weren’t done:

The Lakers are the 4th fastest offense in the NBA, and they are fun to watch. With Kobe being cleared to resume all basketball activities, and Steve Nash returning soon, we may be seeing the Lakers at full strength soon.

Something tells me Kobe won’t be doing much of this when he’s back.
