WATCH: Lillard, Young Throw Down Impressive Dunks

The Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 124-112 in an entertaining matchup on Tuesday night, featuring dunks from stars of both teams.

Toward the end of the second quarter, Blazers point guard Damian Lillard split by two defenders before leaping and jamming home the one-handed dunk. The slam gave the Blazers a one-point edge.

Later in the game, Portland held a twelve-point lead before Nick Young received a pass from Steve Nash while cutting to the basket, which led to a reverse dunk over Mo Williams.

Lillard and Young dropped 74 combined points in the game, making for a highly-contested duel between the two players. Check out the video below for a more complete idea of the battle they put on:
