With room to operate in the open court, the 2012 Slam Dunk Contest participant completed a full clockwise spin before throwing down an emphatic right-handed slam with a little windmill action. The garbage time dunk came with the Pacers leading 94-74 midway through the fourth quarter.
Add this one to the growing list of “Dunk of the Year” candidates, which includes Lakers guard Xavier Henry, Celtics forward Jeff Green, Nuggets forward J.J. Hickson, Magic guard Victor Oladipo, Pistons forward Josh Smith, Heat forward LeBron James twice (over Ben McLemore and over Paul Millsap) and Clippers forward Blake Griffin.
George finished with a game-high 36 points (on 12-for-17 shooting), six rebounds, two assists and three steals. Lance Stephenson added 22 points (on 8-for-17 shooting), 12 rebounds and seven assists for the Pacers.
The Pacers improved their league-best record to 32-7 with the victory. The Clippers fell to 28-14 with the loss. Video via YouTube user ESPN
