POTD 12/16/12: Nick Young on Dwight Howard

Lost in the Lakers’ blowout victory in Philly was a huge night from Swaggy P.  Filling in for leading scorer Jrue Holiday, Nick Young went off for a season-high 30 points, and on a respectable 12-23 from the floor.  Swaggy did the majority of his damage from the outside… he knocked down six three-pointers and a variety of other jump shots, but he also managed to throw down a one-handed dunk in the vicinity of the imposing Dwight Howard…

Despite the lack of contact, this is a strong take.  I commend any shooting guard who goes for a dunk with Dwight Howard lurking like that.  There’s a reason why Howard has blocked 825 shots over the past five seasons whilst appearing on the posterized list just three times.

Honorable mentions to Ed Davis and Andre Iguodala.

Dunk rating on the Starbury Nastiness Scale:

7/10
