LeBron James celebrates as Horton-Tucker gets poster

With the Lakers dominating the game, Horton-Tucker had the ball in his hands. After a few dribbling moves he got the space and decided to bring it to the rack. However, no one expected Horton-Tucker to end the play with an emphatic dunk. He had the entire Lakers bench standing, including LeBron who went wild on the sidelines.

The Hawks just couldn’t find an answer for this Lakers team tonight. The Lake Show arrived prepared and successfully extended their winning streak to four games. They are now improving to 21-19 for the season. For the Hawks, their downfall keeps getting worse after suffering another loss.
