The Los Angeles Lakers got quite the shift from Austin Reaves on Wednesday. Not only did he contribute 15 points and 7 rebounds in 32:13 off of the bench, but he made the clutch 3-pointer that secured a 107-104 victory over the Dallas Mavericks for his team.

It was incredible.

On tonight’s episode of “The Anthony Irwin Show,” Anthony and Christian recapped Reaves’ big night, and discussed where he might fit into the Lakers’ increasingly crowded guard rotation moving forward after a game like this. They also pointed out the other standout performers from Wednesday’s game, including Wayne Ellington, who hit the second-most clutch shot of the night to help the team force overtime and eventually win the game.

After that, they went over a few trades the Lakers can make. For a written version of what Anthony and Christian talked about, you can read our trade targets story here. In short, the Lakers don’t have a lot to work with, but even the smallest of upgrades can help them in a big way.

You can listen to all that and more in the full episode below, and to make sure you never miss a single show moving forward, subscribe to the Silver Screen and Roll podcast feed on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or Google Podcasts.
