Former Detroit Pistons forward Josh Smith has actually been on a roll of late, averaging close to 17 points per game off the bench over his last three games. Perhaps more awe-inspiring, he’s hit 10 of his last 16 three-point attempts.
That didn’t stop J-Smoove getting the raw end of this one though. Challenging Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris early in the second quarter Tuesday night, Smith was the recipient of a Grade A poster dunk.
We’re always fans of a nice power dunk, but we respect Smith’s willingness to contest. He got the last laugh anyway, scoring 20 points in an eight-point Rockets win.
