Things are always better in threes, right?
And so it was with NBA Playoff dunks from Wednesday night’s action.
Oklahoma City star forward Kevin Durant made the most versatile of the three dunks with an ankle-breaking crossover drive to the basket and a powerful and-one slam in his team’s narrow loss to the visiting Grizzlies.
The dunk energized the crowd and Durant, but failed to raise the play of the other Thunder players.
In earlier action, the New York Knicks had two highlight-reel dunks of their own.
Guard Iman Shumpert came flying in from the top of the key for an insane put-back dunk in the second quarter of last night’s Knicks win. Must be the high-rise flat top.
Not to be outshined, guard Raymond Felton tossed an off-the-backboard alley-oop to a trailing Kenyon Martin, who finished off the play with a two-handed jam.
A very entertaining night of basketball capped off with three tremendous dunks.
