dunk of the night

  1. Video: Tyreke Evans does a bad thing to Gary Neal

    Apr 7, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    I no longer believe those reports that Tyreke Evans feet are not 100 percent. Because they look pretty good and he looks plenty explosive on this dunk. A coast-to-coast play where the Spurs Gary Neal tries to slide in late and draw the charge — a good thought — but he ends up in the…

  2. Video: Tony Allen with the Windmill dunk of the night

    In a game featuring Blake Griffin somebody else had the dunk of the night. It was Tony Allen on the breakaway, with time to put a little flourish on it. Make the home crowd happy. Didn’t really help the Grizzlies win, they fell to the Clippers. But it was fun.

  3. Video: Rodney Stuckey makes a poster with Chris Bosh in it

    Mar 24, 2011, 11:08 AM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    That headline kind of bothers me because nobody actually has posters anymore, do they? Wallpapers on their iPhone maybe, but not posters. But if you were still making posters, this is exactly what you would want. Detroit’s Rodney Stuckey starts his drive from the top of the lane and Chris Bosh is just a little…

  4. Video: Derrick Rose celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with monster jam

    Mar 18, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Deron Williams

    I have not delved into Derrick Rose’s ancestry, but for one day at least he and the rest of the Bulls were Irish, wearing the green and everything Thursday night against the Nets. Rose decided to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a huge dunk off a give-and-go from the top of the key. Just watch…

  5. Video: Dwyane Wade with a monster throw down… then the Cabbage Patch?

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:47 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    Oklahoma City got Kendrick Perkins to defend the rim — and he did a good job of it most of Wednesday night — but Dwyane Wade put a hurt on him with this one. (Which is not a slam on Perkins — Wilt Chamberlain standing on Bill Russell’s shoulders may not have blocked this dunk.)…

  6. Video: Tyler Hansbrough is beasting — and dunking

    Mar 16, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    In case you haven’t missed it, Tyler Hansbrough is balling right now. Five straight games with 20 or more points. A couple double-doubles in there. He dropped 30 on what passes for the Knicks interior defense Tuesday night. (If his little brother can channel some of this Notre Dame could go a long way in…

  7. Video: JaVale McGee dunks two balls at once

    Feb 20, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee from the Washington Wizards

    Sure, the car dunk won Blake Griffin the Dunk Contest. But for our money this was the dunk of the night — JaVale McGee, two balls and two rims. It topped our rankings. This was both crazy and athletic. And you can throw in creative, too. It’s worth watching again. And again. And…

  8. It was a Clippers game so the best dunk was… Dwight Howard’s? Yup.

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:41 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    The last five seasons, Dwight Howard has led the league in most dunks in a season. This season, Blake Griffin is pushing him. Tuesday night, Howard taught the Clipper rookie a few lessons — about protecting the rim, about the need to diversify his offensive game (although Griffin is getting there fast), about passing out…

  9. Derrick Rose shows off his crossover, dunking skills

    Feb 8, 2011, 8:47 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Is there a better crossover in the NBA than Derrick Rose‘s? There are some other wicked ones out there, but none better for me. This little highlight clip shows off both the crossover and the dunking skills of Rose during the Bulls upset loss to the Trail Blazers Monday. Rose’s crossover is one move that…

  10. Dunk of the Night: Turns out that LeBron guy is pretty athletic

    Jan 28, 2011, 8:59 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The pace of the Knicks game against the small ball Heat was not as fast as you’d think (90 possessions, which is 6.6 possessions slower than the average Knicks game and even one slower than the average Heat game). Particularly in the fourth quarter. But when the teams did get out and run we got…

  11. Dunk of the Night: J.R. Smith should not be given a clear path

    Jan 27, 2011, 8:38 AM EDT

    J.R. Smith, Tim Duncan

    Ty Lawson really creates this play, he gets the penetration and with it the defenders to commit. Then he makes the deft little pass. But J.R. Smith finishes. Strong. This might not have even been Smith’s best dunk of the night, he had a sweet reverse on a fast break. But we like this one…

  12. Dunk of the Night: Tyson Chandler throws it down. Yes, Tyson Chandler.

    Jan 26, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler

    On a night when Blake Griffin plays, Tyson Chandler has the best dunk of the night?. I’ll have to double-check Revelations, but I’m pretty sure that’s one of the signs of the end times. Griffin did have a nice dunk, but nothing quite like Chandler, who clearly won this dunk contest. The guy most credited…

  13. Dunk of the night: Derrick Rose has some hops

    Jan 11, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    derrick_rose

    Derrick Rose took over the game in the second half and led the Bulls to a win over the Pistons Monday night. You know that game you missed while watching Auburn. The highlight of that second half — a one-handed alley-oop throwdown that was the best dunk last night.  

  14. LeBron James, Courtney Lee with last night’s best dunks

    Jan 4, 2011, 8:11 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    Why choose just one? There are no rules that say there can only be one dunk of the night on this blog. Especially since we’re making up the rules as we go. In that spirit we give you LeBron James on the breakaway against the Bobcats. By the way, this was not the play where…
