Nick Young Says Clutch Free Throws Biggest Moments Of Lakers Career

Nick YoungThe Lakers lost a heartbreaker to the Chicago Bulls tonight, getting beat on a last second lay-up by Taj Gibson. Nick Young had a monster game for the Lakers and did everything he could to get the Lakers the victory. Unfortunately, the Lakers lost 102-100.

Young had 31 points, five rebounds and two steals, but more importantly he drew a foul on Joakim Noah on a three-point shot attempt. Although it was a regular season game, Young felt an immense amount of pressure at the line according to Serena Winters.

Young would go on to make all three free throws and help the Lakers get to overtime. Young admitted the free throws were the biggest moment in his Laker career, even though it’s only been half of one season. He did have to hit three straight free throws in a row and also admitted that was the most pressure he had ever experienced as a NBA player.

Young’s effort the last couple of games has been valiant. He has single-handedly carried the scoring load for this team in the absence of Kobe Bryant. Young is earning himself a good paycheck next year, but this city would love for him to remain in the purple and gold.
