Richard Jefferson has had a hard time getting on the court for the Warriors this season, but with more plays like this one, the team may be inclined to try to find him some additional opportunities.
Early in the second quarter of the Warriors win over the Hornets on Saturday, Jefferson received the ball in the corner behind the three-point arc. He immediately drove baseline, then twisted in mid-air once he saw the help defender coming over to throw down the two-handed reverse slam dunk.
Jefferson finished with a season-high 11 points and four rebounds in 18 minutes, likely getting the opportunity because David Lee was forced to miss this one due to an ankle injury sustained the night before against the Spurs.
