Lakers look for fourth straight win

After losing nine games in a row (and 12 of their last 13) to fall into last place in the Western Conference, the Lakers have gotten back on track lately. They’ve now won three games in a row, including a surprising win over the admittedly shorthanded Spurs on Thursday night. When they face the Mavericks on Saturday afternoon, they’ll be looking to make it four straight. 

Dennis Smith Jr. soars for acrobatic layup

Mavericks rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr. showed off his athleticism once again on Saturday afternoon against the Lakers. After driving to the basket, he cocked the ball back like he was about to jam with authority, but changed his mind and double-clutched for a sweet layup.
