Kevin Durant dunks all over Brendan Haywood in this video during Game 2 of the Western Conference finals. Posted by Ben Golliver.
During the first quarter of Game 2 of the Western Conference finals, Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star forward Kevin Durant made his case for best dunk of the 2010-2011 NBA playoffs.
Wiht the Mavericks leading 28-19, the Thunder inbounded the ball to Durant, who sized up his defender, Mavericks reserve center forward Peja Stojakovic. Durant drove hard to the right and Stojakovic couldn't stay with him. As Durant neared the paint, Mavericks reserve center Brendan Haywood rotated over to contest Durant's drive.
Durant rose off the court and extended up and over Haywood, his right hand with the ball well above the rim. He then thrust the ball down at the rim, completing the dunk before crashing to the ground. Slow motion replay showed Durant well, well above the rim as he let go of the ball and drew the contact in his chest, earning a free throw as well.
Following the dunk, Durant was assessed a technical foul for celebrating the dunk.
Here's video of Kevin Durant's poster of Brendan Haywood with all of the replays and slow motion.
