A lot of people thought the Lakers made a mistake when they passed up on Jahlil Okafor on draft night. Last night, Okafor showed why, when he put game-highs of 19 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks vs LA.
On offense, he was 6 of 14 from the floor, 7 of 12 from the line and on defense he sent a message to the Lakers #2 pick, D’Angelo Russell, with this swat.
