Video: Thunder's Reggie Jackson throws down poster dunk on Nuggets' Kenneth Faried

Thunder guard Reggie Jackson threw down a poster dunk on Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried during Denver's 101-88 victory at the Pepsi Center on Thursday.

With 1:17 left in the first half and Denver leading 54-47, the 6-foot-3 Jackson attacked the paint from the top of the key, sliding around Timofey Mozgov, who was trying to show on a high screen. Jackson then darted past Ty Lawson as he picked up his dribble well outside the protected circle and he prepared for lift-off.

The 6-8 Faried was caught a bit too far underneath the hoop to truly contest the play, allowing Jackson to fly by him to the right and stuff home a right-handed dunk over a two-armed defensive effort.

Jackson's highlight play -- and his 13 points and five assists -- weren't enough to keep the Russell Westbrook-less Thunder competitive with the Nuggets. Kevin Durant scored a game-high 30 points (on 7-for-18 shooting) and added four assists, but Oklahoma City couldn't generate enough offense to keep pace, falling behind by more than 20 points in the second half.

Randy Foye scored a team-high 24 points (on 7-for-11 shooting) and Ty Lawson added 16 points (on 6-for-16 shooting) and 14 assists for the Nuggets, who won their fourth straight game and improved to 18-17.

Oklahoma City dropped to 27-9 with their second straight loss.
