Anthony Davis continues to amaze. And Tyreke Evans understands what kind of player Davis is. Just throw it up and he’ll go get it.
David went and got it indeed:
The Lakers could only helplessly watch. And BROWse what’s going on. I’m sorry. I’ll shut up.

Remember the time when Alexey Shved threw a pass that went into the atmosphere? Well, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Anthony Bennett did the same thing on Wednesday night.
Check out Bennett throw this pass into space:
Actually, this was so bad that it could even look like a really bad lay-up. Either way, yikes.

The Chicago Bulls are going against the Milwaukee Bucks in what could possibly be a playoff preview. The Bucks also got a preview of what the Chicago bigs could do to them.
Pau Gasol throws it up to Taj Gibson for the slam:
Poor Giannis. He got a front row seat but not the kind of view he wanted.

This Clippers/Warriors game on Tuesday night has been bananas. Stephen Curry already put Chris Paul on skates that got everyone on Twitter talking.
Later in the game, Marreese Speights put it on Glen Davis on the baseline:
Nice try, Glen. In fact, I was a little surprised he was able to get that high!

Hold Stephen Curry back. He keeps being ridiculous on the court.
Check out this nice no-look pass to David Lee for the jam:
And he does it so casually, too.

Mario Chalmers seems to make a lot of these. The Heat needed to cut the lead down to keep them in the game against the Spurs and Chalmers came through at the last second.
Chalmers makes this from Tampa Bay:
That cuts the Spurs lead down to 47-42.

It was early in the game when Marc Gasol missed an open shot.
So he took all his anger on his already slightly-torn jersey:
You know, WrestleMania was last weekend. I wonder if Marc Gasol is a Hulkamaniac.

We know that Derrick Williams can dunk. He competed in the 2012 Slam Dunk contest so we know he’s got the hops.
But he didn’t have hops on this dunk against the Memphis Grizzlies. He gets hung on this attempt:
Not the greatest highlight for Derrick Williams.

Andrew Wiggins put on a dunkfest against the Utah Jazz, posterizing Rudy Gobert here and here.
He put down a powerful third dunk with Jeremy Evans in the picture:
Evans, being a former dunk champion, appreciated that, I’m sure. Too bad, the Wolves were smashed by the Jazz throughout the game, 104-84.

The Toronto Raptors got a big win over the Houston Rockets, 99-96, and DeMar DeRozan had a huge part in that win. He scored a career-high 42 points, including a jumper that put the Raptors up three with 18 seconds left in the game.
Get all your DeRozan points here:
That’s why he was an all-star last season, guys.

Gerald Green hasn’t been playing a lot as of late. He got that chance against Portland on Monday night and he did not disappoint.
Keep on flying, Gerald Green:
I think he still hasn’t come down.

Andrew Wiggins already put Rudy Gobert in a poster earlier. I said that Gobert would be up for the challenge again.
He did get that second chance. Unfortunately, the result was even worse for Rudy:
My gosh, Andrew Wiggins. Stop it.

Andrew Wiggins is trying to close this year out strong. So is Rudy Gobert. But Wiggins got the better of Gobert in this Wolves/Jazz match-up.
Wiggins goes in for the slam and gets the foul from Gobert:
The Stifle Tower was stifled for that play, at least. But I’m sure Gobert is willing to take that challenge again.

Hey, guys! Remember Gerald Wallace? Yes, he’s still in the league. Yes, he’s still playing for the Boston Celtics.
And, yes, he can still jump! Look at him go get this alley-oop from Avery Bradley:
Still pretty good there! Watch your head, Marvin Williams.

Dwyane Wade continues to relive his youth as he had yet another big game for the Heat. This time around, he dropped 40 points against the Pistons as Miami won, 109-102.
Watch D-Wade flash before your eyes:
So maybe it was foolish for us to say Wade is done. He’s far from it.

The Cleveland Cavaliers escaped the Philadelphia 76ers, 87-86, in a close contest that saw both teams scoreless in the last four minutes.
This play, however, was pretty excellent. Tristan Thompson catches an alley-oop lob from Matthew Dellavedova. But as you look closer, Thompson catches the ball with his left hand and quickly switches it to his right hand before throwing it down...
The Memphis Grizzlies are on a bit of a swoon. They lost Sunday night against the San Antonio Spurs, 103-89.
But, hey, not all is bad for the Grizzlies. They still provide a nice highlight once in a while.
In this fastbreak play, it seemed like the Spurs lost when Jeff Green dunks on Aron Baynes’ mug:
Maybe just get out of the way next time, Aron.

The Oklahoma City Thunder came back from 20 points down to beat the Phoenix Suns, 109-97. Russell Westbrook had yet another great game as he finished with 33 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists. Russ worked hard for two of those points as he threw down an alley-oop that pretty much posterized his own teammate, Enes Kanter.
D.J. Augustin tosses it and Westbrook catches it:
As the Los Angeles Clippers faced off today against the Boston Celtics, Clippers center DeAndre Jordan did an absolutely incredible alley-oop dunk.
In the second quarter of play, Clippers guard Chris Paul tossed up an impressive alley-oop lob which ended as DeAndre Jordan soared for the monster dunk:
That was incredible, DeAndre!

We all know that Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Andrew Wiggins can throw down a monster slam dunk from time to time but let us not forget that he can also pull off some soaring ones.
In the first half of today’s Minnesota-New Orleans game, Wiggins took a beautiful pass from Anthony Bennett and threw down a one-handed dunk to remember:
Wiggins head was nearly above the rim on that...
As the regular season begins to near the end, the Cleveland Cavaliers seem to be one of the team’s that no one wants to face in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
For today, the Cavaliers played host to the Philadelphia 76ers and star LeBron James got the opportunity in the first quarter of play to throw down a nice slam dunk:
Watch out for flying LeBron James!
After a memorable performance during the All-Star slam dunk contest, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine is getting some more minutes due to injuries.
Today, the Timberwolves faced off against the New Orleans Pelicans and LaVine decided to throw down an impressive baseline slam dunk:
Do it for the LaVine!

There are few players in today’s game of basketball like Washington Wizards star John Wall and during today’s Wizards-Rockets game, he showed off his defensive side.
In the third quarter of play, Houston’s Corey Brewer appeared to have an easy lay-up but watch as Wall flies to get the big block:
Impressive John, very impressive!

As the Milwaukee Bucks look forward to the playoffs, that means it will be the first time that we will get to see Giannis Antetokounmpo play in the pressure of the playoffs.
Tonight, the Bucks hosted the Western Conference-leading Golden State Warriors and in the first half of play, Milwaukee’s Tyler Ennis was able to find Giannis for the alley-oop jam:
Sadly for the Bucks, the...
If there was a player that you had to associate with the art of the chasedown block, it would probably be Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James.
During last night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, LeBron pulled off an impressive transition block of Joe Johnson who appeared to have an easy lay-up in the third quarter:
Despite LeBron’s best efforts in that game, Brooklyn held...
