Jeremy Evans matched his season average in points per game last season with the Utah Jazz with one of the loudest dunks of the NBA preseason on Wednesday.
Evans, a 2010 second-round pick by Utah and the 2012 Slam Dunk Contest champion, is trying to land a spot on the 12-man roster, and might have improved his chances with a hustle play against the Los Angeles Clippers' Ronny Turiaf. Midway through the second quarter, Evans blocks Turiaf's shot attempt, beats him down the court and then slams a one-handed dunk right over him.
The play was embarrassing to say the least for Turiaf, who wasn't beaten not once, but twice.
Check out the high-flying Evans in the video below.
