The NBA’s Top 10 Plays of the Day: January 8th [VIDEO]
Hump day gave us 9 games of NBA action last night, and here are your top 10:
10.) We begin in T-dot as the Raptors' Jonas Valančiūnas fakes and then takes the Piston's Andre Drummond to the rack for the dunk.
9.) Moving on to Portland, the Blazers' Damian Lillard gets the steal and hustles on the fast break for the slam, but gets denied by the Magics' Victor Oladipo. That has to be one of the cleanest blocks this year.
8.) In Brooklyn as the end of the first half winds down, the Nets' Mirza Teletović hits the almost half-court bank-shot trifecta.
7.) And keeping it in Brooklyn, the Nets Shaun Livingston goes old school with the nice cuff dunk around the Warrior's Klay Thompson.
6.) Now in San Antonio, the veteran Vince Carter shows he still has the ups as goes around the Spurs' Tim Duncan for the slam.
5.) At the Staples Center, the Clippers Darren Collison throws the alley oop to DeAndre Jordan who throws it down hard.
4.) In Houston, the Lakers' Wesley Johnson jumps clean over the Rockets' 6-foot point guard, Aaron Brooks for the lay-up.
3.) In Minnesota, the Suns' Gerald Green hits the game winning jumper with mere seconds left on the clock.
2.) Back in H-town, the Rockets' James Harden utilizes a beautiful euro-step crossover on Lakers' rookie, Ryan Kelly.
1.) But the top spot goes to the Clippers' Blake Griffin for his posterizing thunderous dunk on Boston's Kris Humphries. Ouch!
