There were plenty of moments in his return where Steve Nash looked rusty, but there were moments where he looked like the Steve Nash we remember as well.

For an example of the latter, check out the half-court alley-oop pass to Wesley Johnson from Nash.

Nash had nine assists but it wasn’t enough to lift the Lakers. Which is not really a surprise since the Lakers defense is really their big issue (they have given up 1oo or more points in 15 straight games). Still, good to see Nash back on the court and playing again.
