Watch: Glen Davis blocks Pau Gasol's layup

Glen Davis picked up his sixth block of the year in Sunday's win against L.A., and he did it in emphatic fashion.

Orlando Magic forward Glen Davis is hardly known for blocking shots. Entering Sunday's win against the Los Angeles Lakers, Davis, whom Orlando lists at 6-foot-8, had blocked just four shots all season. But he came up with two big ones on Sunday, none more impressive than his denial of All-Star forward Pau Gasol on the fast break.

Rookie point guard Darius Morris hit Gasol under the rim for a transition layup, but Davis closed quickly enough on Gasol to reject the shot right at the rim, denying Gasol what ought to have been an easy two points.

Davis, in a manner fitting his uneven season, recovered the loose ball and attempted to outlet to Arron Afflalo, but overthrew the veteran shooting guard by at least 10 feet, turning the ball back over to L.A.

Davis worked with Nikola Vucevic to badly outplay the Lakers' higher-wattage frontline of Gasol and Dwight Howard on Sunday. Davis and Vucevic combined for 40 points, 24 rebounds, and six blocks on 53.3 percent shooting. Gasol and Howard, in contrast, tallied 32 points, 22 rebounds, and one block, and Gasol did not play in crunch time.
