Highlights from Julius Randle's great game against the Trail Blazers

Julius Randle had his best game as a Laker against the Trail Blazers, giving a sample of what's to come in his career.

Julius Randle had everything working for him against the Portland Trail Blazers, scoring 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting while adding play after play to his preseason highlight reel. Mid-range jumpers? Check. Triple threat jab steps? Check. Coast-to-coast plays? Check. Inhaling rebounds? Check. Showing off his passing vision and ability? Check. Nailing bank shots left and right? Check. Post moves? Check. Most impressive may have been the lob he intercepted and took the other way, forcing Portland to wrap him up for free-throws as he charged to the rim. That was an NBA Jam worthy play.

Randle gave Lakers fans a taste of the all-around talents he'll offer them early in his career and looked phenomenal doing so. His preseason hasn't been all roses, but when he's rolling it's been impressive. Here's a look at what's to come from the seventh-overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft. Enjoy:
