With 0.4 seconds remaining in the first half of Hollywood's bout against the Detroit Pistons, Earl Clark threw down a monstrous alley-oop from Kobe Bryant.

Clark continues to take the Los Angeles Lakers by storm.

Jonas Jerebko somehow lost track of the slashing Clark, whose path to the basket was essentially unimpeded.

Though the video doesn't do it justice, Kobe sold the pass with an awesome "eye fake." He boasted a vexing look that made it seem as if he had no options before tossing it up to Clark.

Bryant's pass was nearly spot-on, and Clark caught it behind him and threw it down. It was a great read by both Kobe and the newly reformed Clark.

The dunk gave the Lakers an 11-point lead heading into the half, and it was a testament to both Clark's athleticism and Bryant's new-found affinity for facility. 

How many times have we seen the Lakers inbound the ball to Bryant for a contested three in the waning moments of a quarter?

Plenty.

And how many times have we envisioned Kobe inbounding the ball to Clark for a poster-worthy alley-oop?

Never.

Los Angeles is now a much more cohesive unit. The chemistry behind this slam is the quintessential example of how far Kobe, Clark and company have come.
