Minnesota Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams had his one-handed dunk attempt rejected by the rim during the second quarter of Sunday's NBA game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Williams received a perfect pass from teammate Malcolm Lee and found himself alone under the basket, so he went for the monster slam dunk to get himself into the sports highlight reels. Unfortunately, the move backfired and now his missed slam dunk will be shown in blooper reels for days and weeks to come.
Fortunately for Williams, Lee grabbed the offensive rebound, and seconds later Williams drew the foul on Blazers forward Nicholas Batum and made two free throws, so in the end, Williams got his two points and ended up with 21 for the game. However, the Trail Blazers won the game over the Timberwolves 119-106.
