Tonight’s dunk of the night nominees are Jeff Green’s dunk on one of the Morris twins (not the one who went off for a career-high 30), Al-Farouq Aminu posterizing Bismack Biyombo and Anthony Davis on one of the Lopez twins.
In terms of importance, Green’s dunk easily wins because it happened when the Celtics were down by 1 and with a minute left in regulation. But the Suns ended up winning despite 28 by Green.
Aminu’s poster came during a blowout with the Mavs already winning by almost 30 in the 4th.
Then we have Anthony Davis who caught an early alley-oop over Robin Lopez. The Pelicans ended up losing but AD put up another monster stat line with 31/11/3/3/3.
Another angle on AD’s dunk.
I was going to give Vince Carter an honorable mention for his dunk but instead I’m going to give it to Heat rookie James Ennis for this double pump slam.
