It hasn’t been great for the Los Angeles Lakers. A 116-111 loss to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night dropped them to  7-8 on the season, they found out star guard Kobe Bryant will be out for a while, saying he is “probably weeks” away from a return and they may have sacrificed precious cap space at a key time by signing Bryant to a two-year, $48.5 million extension.

However, that didn’t stop all-star forward Pau Gasol from making quite a nifty little layup in Tuesday’s game.

Gasol gets a nice feed from Lakers’ point guard Steve Blake. He makes a move to the right without stopping, brings the ball and still lays it up. Quite an athletic move for the 33-year old.

judo chopIn the game, Gasol scored 17 points on eight-of-15 shooting, dished out eight assists, grabbed six rebounds and had two blocked shots. On the season, he’s averaging 14.3 points, 10.6 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game.

The Lakers will get back to work Wednesday when they travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets.
