Play of the Night: Spencer Dinwiddie follows own miss with sneaky tip-dunk

After digging themselves into a 21-point hole last night against the Washington Wizards, the Detroit Pistons made a late fourth quarter push behind the youthful exuberance of none other than rookie second-round draft pick Spencer Dinwiddie.

Pulling within one following a Dinwiddie jumper and Greg Monroe layup, the Pistons found themselves with an opportunity to take their first lead of the evening. Up stepped Dinwiddie, firing an 18-footer from the top of the key, knowing it was off target the moment the shot left his hands. While his defender, John Wall, stood idly by, Dinwiddie sped into an open lane and followed his own miss in climatic fashion:

Dinwiddie’s surprise two-hand flush delivered the Pistons an 85-84 advantage (their first lead of the night) and seemed to secure all the momentum needed to pull out a tough come-from-behind win on the road.

Turns out it wasn’t meant to be, as the Wizards hung on for a 99-95 win. Despite the loss, Dinwiddie impressed with a career high 20 points, 8 assists, and one discount Dominique Wilkins impersonation.
