It’s pretty much routine to expect thrills from Kamara each gameday and on Sunday versus Washington he did not disappoint.
SkyCam has been around since the 1980s but didn’t become a common tool for TV networks until the turn of the 21st century. NBC was the first network to employ the remote-controlled, computer-assisted, cable-suspended camera regularly while broadcasting the XFL in 2001.

After going scoreless in the first half, Randle sparked the Lakers with eight points, four rebounds and one magnificent block at the rim on Bobby Portis.
Rookie Josh Hart, who recently was called up from the G League, provided 11 energetic minutes and one impressive offensive rebound putback dunk. And Clarkson scored 10 of his 12 points in 14-plus minutes to help even the game at 80-80 with 9:32 left.
The Bulls went back up by seven, but the Lakers came charging back and took their first lead since 21-20 with a Caldwell-Pope putback with 3:06 left. Caldwell-Pope played the role of closer, scoring 11 of his 21 points in the final 3:06.
