The renaissance of Nick Young has been one of the most pleasant surprises in this young NBA season thus far.

Under Byron Scott last season, Swaggy P couldn't even find his way into the rotation towards the end of the season, but since Luke Walton has taken the reigns, it has been a different story.

Young has been deployed at the two-spot alongside D'Angelo Russell in the backcourt allowing a second unit of Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams.

The 31-year-old is performing above his career avergaes in just about every category and he even dropped in the game-winning three-pointer against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night.

The Lakers would get blow away by the Golden State Warriors the next night as injuries to Russell and Julius Randle hit them hard, but Young said yesterday that he wants a steal to his name for in addition to the three-point dagger against OKC.

The original play saw rookie Brandon Ingram take the rock into the D before looking to kick it out to Lou Williams.

However, the 2015 Sixth Man of the Year wasn't able to receive the ball as Young swooped in and connected on a turn around three.

Good job for Young that the ball dropped in, because he would of had plenty to answer for otherwise.
