Julius Randle gets past Dirk Nowitzki for an easy And-1

Randle has easily been the best Laker tonight

The Los Angeles Lakers are off to another dispiriting start against the Dallas Mavericks, but the lone bright spot in the game has been the promise shown by Julius Randle.

Julius is showing those that came before him no love, blowing past and going right through Nowitzki all night. Randle will have to do a bit better on defense though, as Nowitzki has yet to miss, going 5-5 from the field in the first half.
