Blazers’ Thomas Robinson with a vicious block of Corey Brewer’s dunk attempt (VIDEO)

Feb 24, 2014, 9:31 AM EST

This, my friends, is a highlight.

Corey Brewer of the Timberwolves had no idea his breakaway dunk attempt was about to be contested — as you see the play unfold, it seems like Thomas Robinson would simply run by as Brewer elevates, like so many defenders do in similar situations.

Brewer rises as if the dunk will be a foregone conclusion, but Robinson gets there in time to violently punch it out of the air, leading to a transition alley-oop dunk for his teammate.

Robinson was whistled for a technical for being a little over-excited afterward, but after multiple viewings of this play, you can hardly blame him.

    What about the near-exact same block on the previous play?

    That was a pretty sick sequence of events.

    I hope George and Hill and Stevenson see this; that’s what one of them should have been trying to do when Brewer leaked out all over them last week in Minnesota.

    Wait, what? They’re allowed to play D in the NBA?
