If you have an internet connection and an interest in NBA basketball there’s no way you haven’t seen this dunk already, so I’ll just skip the buildup. With a must-win game against the lowly Warriors hanging in the balance, Derrick Favors came up with a monster slam, plus the foul. Huge play, plain and simple.
And-one posters that force overtime aren’t something you see every day. Coincidentally, the most recent dunk I can recall that compares to this one also happened in Utah. It wasn’t thrown down by a member of the Jazz, though. Get well soon, Eric Gordon!
Honorable mention to Andrea Bargnani. DJ White and Jamaal Magloire–yes, Jamaal Magloire–had poster dunks as well, but they aren’t on the ‘Tube.
