The Buzz: Larry Nance Jr. is back in the monster dunk game with a bang

Cameron Smith

We've already seen Larry Nance Jr. produce one of the dunks of the season with a flush on top of Warriors forward Kevin Durant. He was back at it Thursday against the Spurs. 

Nance Jr. came down on the break and was hit perfectly with an alley oop. There was only one possible outcome from there, and it ended with Nance Jr. delivering the goods with authority. 

Nance Jr. isn't an all-star, but he should be a representative in the slam dunk contest. With his elevation and talent, it's hard to imagine too many players finishing with plays above his on the end of year highlight reels. It's a bright silver lining on an otherwise disappointing season for the Lakers thus far.
