VIDEO: Lakers’ Xavier Henry Dunks On Jeff Withey Of The Pelicans

Shifted back-and-forth between the starting lineup and the bench, Los Angeles Lakers forward Xavier Henry has been a surprise early in the season, becoming a fan favorite.

However, Henry has struggled in the past few games and head coach Mike D’Antoni had his sixth different starting lineup of the season. Tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans, Henry seems to be back on track.

Henry was exploding to the basket and hit open jump shots while creating energy for the Lakers off the bench. With a little less that two minutes remaining in the third quarter, Henry had Laker fans roaring after a huge dunk over his former college teammate Jeff Withey from his days at Kansas.

Here is the video of Henry dunking over Withey:
