Video: Dennis Smith Jr. skies for a windmill dunk
Dennis Smith Jr. might not have won this year’s Dunk Contest, but the rookie point guard can still throw it down at a moment’s notice, as evidenced by this monster windmill dunk against the struggling New York Knicks.
Smith capped a solid 17-point outing on the road with this stellar slam in front of the fans at Madison Square Garden, making use of the spotlight to display his athleticism.
Despite rumors of a tanking war happening at the bottom of the standings, the Mavs have now won three of their last four games after burying the Knicks 110-97, as Smith looks like one of the few bright spots for a 22-46 team, averaging a hair under 15 points and five assists per game.
Smith’s takeoff is nothing short of delicious, making him another talent to watch out for next season, where he’s likely to sharpen his tools over the summer for his second season in the league.
