And he did so right in the face of NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant.
The 24-year-old only netted eight points, compared to Durant's game-high of 36 points, but he did provide one of the best highlights of the night.
The Warriors led the Lakers 57-51 with about 48 seconds remaining in the first half. Durant dribbled up the floor and attempted a cross-court pass. The feed was intercepted by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and landed in the hands of Nance.
Nance gave the ball back to Caldwell-Pope, who dribbled down the court in transition. Caldwell-Pope then fed Nance, who was flashing down the right side of the court.
Nance elevated directly in front of a leaping 6-foot-9 Durant. He lifted the ball up with his right hand and cranked his arm back. Nance then slammed the ball through the net for the high-rising finish.
LARRY. NANCE JR. JUST. DID. THAT.— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) December 19, 2017
