Nick Young Steals Pass From Teammate, Travels, Then Hits Game-Winning Shot (Video)


On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder engaged in one of the best games of the young NBA season at Staples Center, with the Lakers coming out on top by a score of 111-109.

In the fourth quarter. down by 1 with 14 seconds to go, Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young stole a pass intended for teammate Lou Williams, blatantly traveled, then proceeded to hit a game winning three-pointer.


After the game, Nick Young had this to say about the play:

“Mine is kind of unique because I stole it from my own teammate,” the Lakers guard said with a laugh after the Lakers’ 111-109 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder at Staples Center. “It wasn’t designed for me, but that should go down in history.”

“They should’ve given me a steal for that!” added Young, who finished with 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting, including 4-of-7 from 3-point range. “[Williams] let me know after the game; he told me I was lucky I made it.”
