Video: Lakers’ JaVale McGee steps in for the pull-up 3-pointer and nails his first for the season
Often seen camping near the lane catching lobs and put back dunks, McGee decided to test his range by pulling up from the top of the key against the unsuspecting Nuggets D.
JaVale pulled up confidently for three.

With Nikola Jokic backing off from him, the 7’0″ center displayed a good follow through with his shot and hit nothing but nylon. He finished with seven points and five rebounds in 18 minutes.
Without LeBron James who was out for the first time this season due to a muscle strain, the Lakers lost their straight game, 104-28. This is their longest losing streak of the season, as they now hold a 24-6 record.
