It’s rare that a regular-season NBA game between teams with 13-10 and 8-15 records could be fun, but that’s the case for Thursday night’s Lakers-Sixers game due to the abundance of young talent these teams possess.

One extremely talented young player is the Lakers’ Brandon Ingram, the second overall pick out of Duke in the 2016 NBA Draft. And the versatile wing showed off his crazy athleticism with this drive and reverse dunk in the first quarter, for an and-one:

After a tough rookie season, Brandon Ingram is coming into his own in his sophomore campaign. The 20-year-old is averaging 16 points per game on 46.3% shooting from the field, and seems to look better each week. He has superstar potential and we’re starting to see that now.

UPDATE: Ingram hit a game-winning three with 0.8 seconds left on the clock. Great call from Kevin Harlan on this one:
