This one was too good to not re-visit.
In the first quarter of Friday night’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and L.A. Clippers, Austin Rivers found himself matched up with Lakers rookie Josh Hart—and decided to have some fun.
Check out Austin’s lightning-quick crossover to get past Hart and to the rim, as shared on twitter by @ClipperFilmRoom:
I am convinced that Austin has the quickest right to left cross in the entire league. This is lighting quick.— Clipper Film Room (@ClipperFilmRoom) December 30, 2017
Get well soon, Austin. pic.twitter.com/BPhrTh6Fl6
Rivers had 13 points and 3 assists against the Lakers before exiting with an ankle injury in the third quarter, and the Clippers went on to win in wire-to-wire fashion. Austin’s in the midst of his best season as a pro, averaging 15.8 points and 3.6 assists while shooting a career-best 40.5% from three.
