Found May 13, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
Boston Celtics center Ryan Hollins blew a slam dunk after getting the alley-oop pass from guard Rajon Rondo during Saturday's Eastern Conference semifinal playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

It happened near the end of the first quarter on a fast break. Hollins failed on the dunk and then landed very hard on his back, but fortunately he was OK. The Celtics won the game 92-91.
