Found February 13, 2013 on NBA 24/7 365:
Approximately seven minutes into Tuesday’s matchup with the Raptors, Timofey Mozgov checked in for the first time in three games.  He was forced into action in the stead of JaVale McGee, who happened to re-aggravate a leg injury that’s been giving him problems lately.  In fairness to Mozgov, the Raptors seemed to be making a concerted effort to take the ball to the rim even before his surprise appearance.  They’d already attempted six shots in the painted area, but there’s little doubt in my mind that DeMaR DeRoZaN’s decision to attempt one of the biggest dunks of the season thus far was positively influenced by the presence of the bumbling Mozgov rather than that of McGee, one of the league’s finest athletes and premier shot blockers. Not surprisingly, this brutal basketball homicide took place just five minutes and 45 seconds into Timofey’s first stint of the night.  With the acquisitions of high-flyers like Rudy Gay and Terrence Ross, Toronto is no longer any place for a lumbering clodhopper like Mozgov.  R.I.P., again (this dude is like a cat with his nine lives). Honorable mentions to LeBron James and Marcus Morris. Dunk rating on the Starbury Nastiness Scale: 9.5/10 2012/13 Daily Poster Stats Throwback Poster of the Day: Jason Maxiell on Joey Graham…
