Gasol’s always been an underrated passer but it’s not often we get to award him with an Assist of the Night. While posting up against Anthony Davis, Gasol was trying to either spin or flop but ended up on the floor where he was able to make a sneaky bounce pass to Jamison under the basket. I guess Davis was looking for a call to be made because he just stood frozen when Gasol went down.
Before you get back to criticizing Gasol for being “soft,” try to enjoy this pass as much as Chris Webber did.

and we can’t talk about Lakers making passes from the ground without bringing up this beauty from (2:00 mark) Magic Johnson.
