Harrell has been nothing but impressive in his first year donning the Purple and Gold. So far, he’s averaging 13.2 points and 6.4 rebounds across 24.9 minutes off the bench.
The play above is just a single page out of his deep offensive arsenal. From time to time, the Lakers set Harrell up on the high post to showcase his skills. Not only can he blow by slower big men, but he also has a reliable perimeter stroke in his tool kit.
The Lakers definitely won the free agency lottery when Harrell chose them over town rivals LA Clippers. Just a year ago, Harrell was one of the most hated players by the Lakers fan base. Now, he’s definitely beloved for the intensity he brings every night.
In Wednesday’s overtime win over the Thunder, Harrell dropped 20 points, four rebounds, and three assists. This stretches the Lakers’ winning streak to six games. They have a chance to extend it to seven games on Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies.
