Against the Brooklyn Nets Friday night, Josh Smith did something pretty amazing. With Smith loose on a fast-break, Mirza Teletovic didn’t get back in time to defend him, and half-heartedly threw his hand out to contest from a few feet behind.
Unfortunately for Smith, Teletovic’s hand hit him square in the face as he was rising up. Unfortunately for Teletovic, Smith was able to slam it home through the contact.
Smith immediately reacted after coming down from the dunk, and Teletovic went over to make sure he was okay. Teletovic was assessed a flagrant-1 foul for hitting Smith above the neck.
I don’t know about you, but I think that’s an incredible play. Smith got hit in the face, couldn’t see, and still put the dunk down. That’s a dunk-contest level dunk. Just ask Cedric Ceballos.
