A former member of the Los Angeles Lakers got in a late highlight against his old team in the closing minutes of a Friday night game at Staples Center.
Phoenix Suns guard Shannon Brown threw down a big putback dunk against the Lakers with a little more than four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Brown crashed the boards untouched by Lakers big men Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, sneaking in to snare the ball with his left hand before clutching it with both hands to throw it down with two hands.
Brown, 26, is averaging a career-high 9.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per game after signing with the Suns in December. Long known as a high flier, Brown competed in the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest.
The Lakers went on to win, 111-99. Brown finished with 15 points and 1 rebound on 6-for-11 shooting in 20 minutes for Phoenix.
