One person who enjoys Laker wins is former Laker and current TWC SportsNet analyst James Worthy who famously celebrated after the team bested the Toronto Raptors. Since then, the Lakers have only won once before Tuesday’s matchup. Worthy took the time to continue his cheering by applauding the team’s defensive effort against the Kings and was seen doing defensive slides in celebration. Here is the video:

The Lakers held an opponent under 100 for the seventh time this season and did so by holding the Kings to just 14 points in the fourth quarter. With the Lakers stifling the Kings, Kobe Bryant found his shot in the final frame and tied the game at 92 with a three pointer. The team would hold on as the Kings missed on a pair of three pointers in the final seconds and the Lakers got their second win over a Western Conference opponent.
