Video: Josh Okogie caught the Nuggets ball-watching and soars for the nasty putback slam

Timberwolves, Josh Okogie, Nuggets

The Minnesota Timberwolves were unable to put an end to their losing streak against the Denver Nuggets. Regardless, guard Josh Okogie still managed to add a dunk to the highlight reel.

Okogie was able to take full advantage of a a lack of box-out from the Nuggets with a thunderous put-back dunk during the second quarter, via Legion Hoops:

Clips like these are a reminder of the importance of boxing out. Today’s NBA guards are more than capable of throwing down rebounds if left unchecked and center Mason Plumlee had to pay the consequences of his teammates’ ball watching.

Okogie has largely struggled to find his footing since being taken with the 20th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. That was evident this game after finishing with 10 point on 3-of-8 shooting, however, he did manage to tack on four rebounds, three assists, and a steal.

Unfortunately, the big play from Okgoie was not enough to spark a potential resurgence for the Timberwolves after the nuggets secured a 128-116 victory.
