(Video) NBA: DeMar DeRozan With a Dunk of the Year Candidate With Vicious Dunk Over 7’2 Rudy Gobert!
Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert is one of the best shot blockers in the game but what comes with being a rim protector is the possibility of getting viciously dunked on, and that’s what happened Wednesday night. With roughly 4:20 remaining in the fourth quarter, Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan dribbled past the defending Gordon Hayward and rose to finish at the rim. Gobert tried to stop him, but it only ended with this early frontrunner for Dunk of the Year.
This thunderous dunk gave the Raptors a 83-82 lead, but they eventually lost 93-89 for their third-straight defeat. The dunk also helped distract attention from a relatively poor game for DeRozan, who shot 6-of-15 from the field for 14 points with six assists. Derrick Favors led the way for Utah with 18 points on 7-of-9 FG and 11 rebounds.
