Lakers Highlights: Brandon Ingram unleashes his most ferocious dunk of the year on Cheick Diallo

That’s how you use length.

After a rough first half of the season, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Brandon Ingram has come on for the Lakers. The forward has shot above 50 percent from the field over his last 15 games while scoring 14 points per game and showing increased aggression while attacking the basket.

Nowhere was that more evident than on his (presumably career-ending) dunk on Cheick Diallo of the New Orleans Pelicans (warning, video may not be safe for work):

Ingram’s yell after the dunk could be heard a few rows up even amidst the roars of fans, and it seems unlikely he’s going to be challenged at the rim as frequently next season as defenders start to realize the only thing that comes of that is ending up on the wrong end of a poster.
