6’3 Former Raptor Ben Uzoh Dunks On DeAndre Jordan in USA vs Nigeria Game

Toronto Raptor’s All-Star DeMar DeRozan had the most memorable dunks of the night during the USA vs Nigeria showcase, but the first impressive dunk of the night came from a former Raptor teammate of DeRozan.

Midway through the first quarter – when the game was still close and competitive – Nigeria’s 6’3 point guard Benjamin Uzoh threw down a surprising 1-hand dunk on/by/whatever 6’11 DeAndre Jordan. You would think a dunk from the opposing team wouldn’t get much love in the states but the game was played in Houston, which has a very large Nigerian population and both Uzoh and Jordan were born in H-Town.

In 29 minutes of action, Uzoh finished with 10 points and 6 assists.

UZOH’S CAREER NBA GAME

Although his stint in Toronto wasn’t a very long one, Raptors’ fans might remember the undrafted player putting up a triple double (12/12/11) on April 26th of 2012. The reason why the triple-double was so memorable is because it was the first in franchise history since Alvin Williams had one in 2001.
