Xavier Henry's Slam Against the Clippers Was Vicious

LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 29: Xavier Henry

The Clippers probably felt pretty good coming into tonight's matchup against the Kobe-less Lakers. Just control grizzled old codgers Steve Nash and Pau Gasol, they thought, and the Lakers surely would lack the firepower and depth to hang with the Clippers' stacked roster.

Oh, how wrong they were. 

The Lakers came to play tonight. Not only are Jodie Meeks, Jordan Farmar and newcomer Xavier Henry burying the Clippers from downtown, but as you can clearly see from the video above, they are even out-lobbing Lob City.

No, you're not watching an old clip of the Showtime Lakers. That's Jodie Meeks setting up Henry for the Earth-shattering stuff.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers made a lot of noise this offseason about covering up the Lakers' championship banners, but the way this game is going, the Clippers should consider hanging banners of Meeks and Henry for motivation.
