Vince Carter turned 39 last week and I said I wish people would stop saying “he’s turning back the hands of time” every single time he dunks. People have been writing it for years and on Monday night, he gave those people another opportunity to do so when he threw down a reverse dunk against the Pelicans.
More impressive than the dunk is him connecting on 5 of 6 shots in 19 minutes and connecting on back-to-back clutch 3s in the final 3 minutes.
“We have a lot of guys really contributing to what we’re doing,” said Carter, who is now 10 of 14 over his last 2 games. “Guys are just playing hard and letting it all hang out for the good of the team.”
