Lakers Highlights: Tarik Black throws down lob from Marcelo Huertas

New, comment

Tarik is pretty good at this whole dunking thing.

Tarik Black is starting to play significant minutes after spending most of the season on the bench, and the sophomore big man is making a strong case for more playing time. As has been covered ad nauseum on this site and many others, Black is the Lakers' best/only big rolling out of the pick-and-roll, and on this play Marcelo Huertas' beautiful pass was the catalyst Tarik needed to nearly tear the rim down:

If Tarik can keep making plays like that, Scott will have no reason to take him out of the rotation again as the team tries to value him heading into free agency.
