The play of the game was Jason Kidd intentionally spilling his coke, but the dunk of the game and night belonged to Wes Johnson. Wes only made two shots in the game but this one over Paul Pierce was pretty spectacular.
Watching the Lakers Johnson throw down one of these baseline reverse dunks just makes me miss Kobe, the master of this dunk, even more. Here’s Kobe’s Top 20 baseline reverse dunks.
