Bobcats' Mullens dunks on Blazers' Aldridge

*****

By Ben Golliver

It's all downhill from here for Bobcats center Byron Mullens, who just threw down the dunk of his life over Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge.

With roughly eight minutes remaining in the first quarter Monday in Charlotte, Mullens rebounded his own miss, took one dribble into the paint and exploded over the top of Portland's All-Star forward for a one-handed, reaching dunk that sent his bench into hysterics. Time Warner Cable Arena wasn't exactly packed, but the fans in attendance jumped out of their seats when Mullens completed the stuff.

Mullens, a 7-footer out of Ohio State, is averaging career highs of 12.9 points and 8.2 rebounds. His dunk joins Jeff Green's posterization of Al Jefferson and Harrison Barnes' stuff over Nikola Pekovic in the "Dunk of the Year" conversation.
