Lakers vs. Jazz final score: Nick Young goes off in 119-104 victory

Russell Isabella, USA TODAY Sports

Swagtastic times for the Lakers.

It wasn't 51 points but Nick Young had a career-high scoring outburst against the Utah Jazz in a 104-119 victory. Swagimus Prime led the Lakers to their first victory in April and snapped a seven-game losing streak. One more game to go, so why not let Young flex a bit. He's been one of the lone bright spots of the season, even if frustrating at times.

The Lakers used Young's monstrous 17-point fourth quarter to fuel the rare victory. Los Angeles outscored Utah 33-18 in the fourth.

The victory solidifies the team will finish the season above the Jazz in the standings, however. In a battle between two teams desperately needing young blue chip talent the Jazz came out on top. The odds won't be heavily in the Lakers favor, but with the amount of talent and lady luck, who knows.

Kendall Marshall finished the night with just two points but a ho-hum 15 assists. Jordan Hill added in 21 while Most Improved Meeks chipped in 23.

Los Angeles visits the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, but enjoy this until then:
