Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard showed off his hops Friday night against the Dallas Mavericks, taking flight before throwing down a two-handed jam on an alley-oop.

Kyle Kuzma led Howard perfectly here. The 34-year-old big man got up there and slammed it home with authority.

Howard’s head was pretty much level with the rim. That’s impressive.

The veteran center has been a solid bench player for the Lakers this season, averaging 7.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and an impressive 1.5 blocks per game in just under 20 minutes of work per night.
