The NBA’s Top 10 Plays of the Day: January 15th [VIDEO]
There was some awesome NBA action last night and plenty of it, so the highlight reel is back up to 10 plays. Let's go!
10.) We start things of in Minnesota as the T-wolves' Kevin Love hits the no-look circus shot and draws the foul.
9.) In TD Gardens in Boston, the Celtics' Phil Pressey & Avery Bradley get the steal and then it's off to the races for the perfectly executed fast break play. Nice behind-the-back pass from Pressey.
8.) Moving on to Orlando, the Bulls' Tony Snell gets the Jordan-esque dunk over 2 Magic defenders.
7.) Back in Minnsota, the Kings' Isaiah Thomas throws the perfect lob pass to Rudy Gay who finishes the alley oop.
6.) In Los Angeles, the Clippers' Blake Griffin slams home the grown-man's dunk.
5.) On to (what in my opinion should have been the #1 play), at Milwaukee, the Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo throws the alley to Larry Sanders who finishes with the reverse dunk. Level of difficulty: 10!!!
4.) In Portland (we just have all sorts of lobs on this countdown), the Trailblazers' Nicolas Batum sends the alley to Damian Lillard who finishes easily.
3.) In Philly, the 76ers' Tony Wroten flies high to put the Bobcats' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in the dunk victims poster.
2.) On to New Orleans, as the Pelicans' Jason Smith cleanly rejects the attempted dunk of the Rockets' Chandler Parsons. That's one of the cleanest dunk blocks of the season thus far.
1.) But the top spot goes to Philly's Thaddeus Young as he drains the trifecta on the Bobcats' Josh McRoberts with time winding down on the clock to give the 76ers the victory.
