Wizards’ Chandler Hutchison sends the Lakers’ Talen Horton-Tucker back to G League with insane poster
After Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma got baptized by Daniel Gafford in an earlier play, it was THT’s turn to be on the receiving end of a poster jam. It was in a similar fashion, too, as Horton-Tucker looked like he wanted to take the charge only to end up obliterated with a highlight slam.
Hutchison showcased his hops at the beginning of the second quarter, as he received a nice dime from Russell Westbrook on the break. The 24-year-old swingman gave his best Brodie impression, as he skied high for the impressive finish.

By the looks of it, the Wizards are looking to run the Purple and Gold out of the building with their high-wire act. Hutchison is showing he deserves more minutes from head coach Scott Brooks with his energetic start to this game. The 6-foot-7 winger has been notching 5.7 points and 3.9 rebounds in just under 18 minutes a game since being traded to the Wizards over the deadline.
Horton-Tucker, on the other hand, has been known to dish poster dunks of his own. For sure, he would like to get back at Hutchinson at some point in this match.
Prior to their game against the Lakers, the Wizards have won eight of their last 10 contests. They are in the thick of it when it comes to securing a play-in spot.
