Dunk of the Night: J.R. Smith should not be given a clear path

J.R. Smith, Tim Duncan

Ty Lawson really creates this play, he gets the penetration and with it the defenders to commit. Then he makes the deft little pass.

But J.R. Smith finishes. Strong.

This might not have even been Smith’s best dunk of the night, he had a sweet reverse on a fast break. But we like this one in traffic, where the Pistons scatter rather than end up getting dunked on.
