When Donatas Motiejunas returns stateside for the Houston Rockets training camp, he is going to be one of the guys fighting for minutes in suddenly deeper and more interesting Rockets front line. The rotation there is far from set (outside of Dwight Howard starting at the five) and how he performs will ultimately determine how much run he gets. Well, that and what the Rockets decide to do with Omer Asik.
Motiejunas is currently playing for his native Lithuania at the European Championships, and he’s been solid if unspectacular (10 minutes, 5 points and a couple rebounds a game) — except for this dunk. Which is one of the better ones we’ve seen out of EuroBasket.
