Lakers forward Nick Young says his home was burglarized while he was at a game. / Steve Mitchell, USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles Lakers sixth man Nick Young says his home was burglarized Sunday night while he was at a game.

Young told news reporters Monday that almost $100,000 worth of goods were taken from his Los Angeles home. The Lakers' No. 2 scorer said prized Nike Air Yeezy sneakers were among the items stolen.

"I walked in and saw drawers open, clothes all over the floor. I know I didn't leave my place like that," Young said, via the Los Angeles Times. "Then I looked at the window and it was broken. Glass all over the floor. That's when I knew someone had gotten in there."

Young, 28, said he called police at 2 a.m., when he arrived home after the 103-94 victory against the Orlando Magic. He scored 26 points to lead the Lakers, who snapped a four-game losing streak.

"I think they knew that I had a game that day," Young said. "I think they scoped it out a little bit. Obviously they knew nobody was in the house and they knew we had a game, so they came at the right time."

The Los Angeles native and fan favorite, nicknamed "Swaggy P," has had a breakout season for the injury-ridden Lakers, averaging 17.0 points in 28.6 minutes a game.

"I was just shocked they tried to get 'Swaggy,' " Young said.
