Terrence Jones ignites the break with a block, James Anderson finishes with a posterization of Evan Fournier (VIDEO)

Apr 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

When looking at the names in the headline, the more casual NBA fan may not have been enticed enough to click through and check out the highlight.

Oh, what a mistake that would have been.

If you’ve gotten this far, then you’re fortunate enough to have seen one of the more incredible plays of Saturday night’s action.

It all starts with the Nuggets’ Corey Brewer getting out in transition, and challenging Terrence Jones at the rim. Jones sends Brewer’s shot back with force, igniting the Rockets’ fast break in the other direction. The ball ends up in the hands of Patrick Beverly, who finds James Anderson for the high-flying slam over Evan Fournier, who has the misfortune of trying to take the charge after setting up shop inside the restricted area.

(If you happen to be a Nuggets fan and want the more glib version, the NBA’s YouTube channel posted the feed from the Nuggets broadcast, which is fairly hilarious in contrast to this one.)

Don’t feel bad for Fournier, whose first name is not Vincent as the excitable Rockets broadcaster would have you believe. The rookie from France scored 17 points and dished out five assists in 23 minutes of action off the bench, as the Nuggets took care of Houston without Ty Lawson and Danilo Gallinari by a final of 132-114.

    THANK YOU! We’ve had very few true posterisations this year but this is starting to make up for it!

    Also, those Nuggets broadcasters annoy me so much. I dislike those guys that give no emotion when players from other teams make great plays. I get you like Fournier, we all do he’s playing very well as of late, but do your job!!

      Nuggets fan here. And you are right, the broadcasters for the Nuggets are terrible, especially Scott Hastings.

        Nuggets fan here. And you are wrong.

        Scott Hastings is very critical of everyone on the floor regardless of uniform.

        Give me a break. Hastings is the biggest homer announcer in the league. The Nuggets have never committed a foul according to Hastings. But if someone even breathes in the direction of a Nuggets player, he cries for a foul. Get Real!

        Give me a break.

        He calls everyone out on fouls. It’s really sad that you have to complain about announcers. I guess you gotta turn to someone else after you’re done kicking the dog.
