Greg Smith throws down on Tiago Splitter (VIDEO)

Mar 25, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

Tiago Splitter ends up on the wrong end of a lot of dunks. Which means he’s a guy defending the rim who doesn’t shirk away from his duties. That’s admirable.

But he still gets dunked on a lot, which is what happened with Greg Smith on Sunday. The Rockets’ Smith was open at the elbow to take the pass, roll to the rim and throw it all down with authority. The Spurs’ Splitter tried to make the play. And here we are.

    Don’t give credit to anyone who used their off hand. It’s amazing the officials can’t see this. What else are they watching while one guy is going up for a shot and the other is going up to block it? Easy call.

    My typical song and dance: I salute players who try to play defense, regardless of nasty throwdown.
    PS. Undrafted.
