Seattle native Jamal Crawford was pretty excited that Zach LaVine was going to play in the Seattle Pro-Am that benefits his foundation yesterday:

It turns out his excitement was justified, as LaVine absolutely dominated proceedings in a format designed for his abilities, pouring in 49 points, and doing stuff like this:

In addition to his array of dunks, LaVine also made 8-19 threes, including this ridiculous game winner:

LaVine, also a Washington native, put on a show for the home folks and added another performance to his growing legend as one of the most entertaining ballers around.
