Incredible play here by Iman Shumpert, who skied over everyone to throw down just a monster of a putback slam during the second quarter of Game 2 between the Knicks and the Pacers.
A lot had to go just right for this dunk to even become possible — the shot had to carom off of the rim at the perfect angle, Shumpert had to time his run into the lane and jump fairly exactly, and the Pacers had to be complicit by ball-watching instad of finding Shumpert to box him out.
Thankfully, it all came together.
