Video: Terrance Ferguson’ acrobatic alley-oop finish
Not too long ago, Terrance Ferguson was an image of concern as he laid on the floor unconscious for a few seconds after colliding with Oklahoma City Thunder teammate and revered Dothraki warrior Steven Adams.
Now, the high-flying rookie is back to his breathtaking ways in mid-air. During the Thunder’s game against the L.A. Clippers, Ferguson displayed his athletic prowess once again in one exhilarating play.
Backup point guard Raymond Felton made eye contact with Ferguson as the latter was getting ready to attack the open lane from the baseline. Felton didn’t have to worry about his pass going nowhere, though, knowing that his young teammate can catch the ball regardless of how bad a pass is and the end result was nothing short of spectacular.

All that one can say after watching the play was “thank heavens for slow-motion cameras.”
Felton’s pass seemed like it was short, but Ferguson made it look like it was on the money. It’s like watching a National Geographic video about human flight.
The Thunder downed the Clippers, 121-113, and Ferguson contributed to the cause by scoring 12 points, stealing the ball three times, and canning a couple of three-balls in only 17 minutes of action. This was a surprise game from the young shooting guard as he’s only averaging 2.9 points in 12 minutes per game for Oklahoma City.
He’s certainly brought more electricity to a Thunder squad that is already one of the more star-studded teams in the NBA. They’re right in the thick of the playoff battle as the Western Conference race only heats up by the day.
