Breakaway dunks are the stuff of excitement and showtime (remember what Paul George did a couple weeks ago?). But for the Kings and Timberwolves the last few days, they’ve been the stuff of embarrassment and plain ol’ dunk fails. On Sunday night, Derrick Williams of the Kings tried to go for some Dunk Contest flair and ended up, welp, not coming anywhere close to that.
Then there was last night in Minneapolis as the Wolves hosted the Lakers. Corey Brewer leaks out (surprise!) for a fast-break bucket off a Lakers miss and catches a dandy outlet pass from (double-surprise!!) Kevin Love. He’s got a couple steps on Nick Young, so he takes flight just inside the key … and … #DunkFail!
