Parker picked on the Lakers in the second quarter of the 107-100 setback on Tuesday at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Lakers led 21-20 with about 10:30 remaining in the frame when Parker caught a pass Zach LaVine.
Parker looked as though he was about to back down Lakers defender Josh Hart, but instead used a quick spin move to go toward the baseline after making the catch. He then floated back toward the rim where he elevated and pulled the ball up in his right hand.
Lakers guard Svi Mykhailiuk ran over to help, but Parker would not be stopped. He stuffed the ball in over both players with authority, giving the Bulls a one-point advantage.
