The Lakers have shown great improvement under Luke Walton so far this season and with a record of 3-3, they might just defy the critics who pencilled them in to prop up the Western Conference.

Their best and most promising showing yet came against the Golden State Warriors last night as they blitzed past the Dubs 117-97.

The Warriors had four All-Star starters in their starting five, the Lakers do not have a current All-Star on their entire roster.

The young core that the Purple and Gold possess has really got people excited and having a young coach like Walton, 36, who knows the Warriors better than almost anybody, seems to be a fine recipe thus far.

Although D'Angelo Russell, Julius Randle and Brandon Ingram are set to be major stars down the road, it was Larry Nance Jr who made some headlines last night.

With the second quarter only three minutes old, the sophomore forward collected the rock at the free throw line and proceeded to throw it down all over a powerless David West.

There is being put on a poster, then there is what happened to poor old West.

It's an early dunk of the year contender, is it the best we have seen so far?
