Video: Knicks' Iman Shumpert throws down monster putback dunk against Pacers

Knicks guard Iman Shumpert threw down a monster putback dunk during a 105-79 win over the Pacers in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series on Tuesday.

With a little over eight minutes remaining in the second quarter, Shumpert charged from well outside the three-point line to attack the offensive glass following a missed three-pointer by Chris Copeland. The four Pacers players in the paint failed to get a body on Shumpert, who timed his leap perfectly to catch the ricochet off the back rim with his right hand. He corralled the rebound and went straight into a dunk all in one motion while in midair, finishing the slam with authority before slapping the ball to the official. 

Shumpert finished with 15 points (on seven-for-11 shooting), six rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes. The Knicks were led by a game-high 32 points from Carmelo Anthony. Pacers forward Paul George had a team-high 20 points and four rebounds in a losing effort.

The series is now tied at one game apiece. Game 3 is set for Indiana on Saturday night.
