Johnson said Harrell ‘is providing that outstanding spark for the Lakers’, with his performance on both ends of the floor.

“Center Montrezl Harrell is providing that outstanding spark for the @Lakers, like he did for the Clippers, averaging 14 PPG and shooting 64% from the field!” Johnson tweeted.

Harrell is averaging 13.8 points (63.9% shooting) and 6.4 rebounds in 32 games for the Lakers this season.
