Xavier Henry Posterizes Jeff Withey (Video)

Xavier Henry has just joined the Dunk of the Year conversation. In Tuesday night’s game between the New Orleans Pelicans and Los Angeles Lakers, the 22-year-old Lakers guard threw down a mean dunk over center Jeff Withey. With the final minutes of the third quarter winding down, Henry received the ball at the top of the key, pump-faked and drove down the lane. He took off after two dribbles, soaring over former University of Kansas teammate Withey for the dunk.

 

 

Henry finished with 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting in 22 minutes off the bench. Los Angeles defeated New Orleans 116-95.
