Lakers Highlights: Timofey Mozgov’s dunk made the Raptors’ rim protection extinct

Like a meteor, the big man was unstoppable heading towards the basket.

Timofey Mozgov isn’t traditionally known for his graceful drives to the basket or the success of his pump fakes, which made it all the more surprising when he successfully busted out both against the Toronto Raptors:

The Raptors saw him coming and evidently thought he was a meteor, because their paint presence went extinct.

If Mozgov can make this a consistent component of his game moving forward*, that’d be a big addition for the Lakers.

*he won’t, but it was fun to watch this time!
