VIDEO: Lakers’ JaVale McGee taunts Cavs’ Kevin Love after block
The Cavs ran a great play to fool the Lakers’ defense. Love seemingly had McGee beat in a cut to the hoop, but the Lakers big caught up with his Cavs counterpart and swatted his dunk. For what it’s worth, McGee is 12th in the league in blocked shots per game with 1.6.
As Love fell to the floor, McGee stared him down just to let him know that there’s no such thing as easy dunks when facing the Purple and Gold franchise.

Lakers fans are all too familiar with McGee’s defensive tenacity. He’s one of the reasons why the team is one of the best defensive teams in the league.
JaVale McGee utilizes his length and athleticism to contest shots. Sometimes he gets called for goal-tending, but most of the time, he effectively holds down the fort for the Lakers.
