Tony “1st Team All-Defense” Allen must have been inspired by all of the Dikembe Mutombo tribute video floating around the web on Tuesday night when the Hawks retired Deke’s jersey. On Wednesday against the Rockets, Allen blocked a shot by Dwight Howard and then gave the “center” the finger wag.
As nice as that play was, it’s nowhere near as nice as this block/steal on Dwight when Howard was with the Lakers.
Tony actually has a nice portfolio of highlights against Dwight, which includes this putback dunk.
And this baseline dunk on Howard during his Orlando Magic days.
