The Los Angeles Clippers put a 111-80 beating on the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. Given their dominating performance, its hard to find a bright spot for the Blazers. But there was one, and his name is Jake Layman.
In his first career game against the Golden State Warriors, Layman scored 17 points in his first eight minutes. Against the Clippers, he scored 9 points in 16 minutes. Incredibly, Layman set a new NBA record for most points scored in 36 minutes of playing time.

Against the Clippers, he came in and threw down a monstrous reverse dunk. The move was so nice that Chris Paul and the Clippers' bench could not contain themselves from getting hyped.
Most of Layman's points have come late in games, but if he keeps playing like this, the Trail Blazers will be compelled to give him more minutes.
