Lost in the Lakers’ blowout victory in Philly was a huge night from Swaggy P.  Filling in for leading scorer Jrue Holiday, Nick Young went off for a season-high 30 points, and on a respectable 12-23 from the floor.  Swaggy did the majority of his damage from the outside… he knocked down six three-pointers and a variety of other jump shots, but he also managed to throw down a one-handed dunk in the vicinity of the imposing Dwight Howard… Despite the lack of contact, this is a strong take.  I commend any shooting guard who goes for a dunk with Dwight Howard lurking like that.  There’s a reason why Howard has blocked 825 shots over the past five seasons whilst appearing on the posterized list just three times. Honorable mentions to Ed Davis and Andre Iguodala.
