New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

Video: J.R. Smith’s monster slam dunk


The Knicks blew out the Sixers for the second time in as many days, and this slam dunk from J.R. Smith provided the exclamation point.

Two things to love about this one: First, the way Smith’s entire body seems to arch back as he’s flying toward the rim before throwing it down is amazing. And second, the fact that he took a few steps toward, and possibly even into the crowd on the road after doing so shows all kinds of swagger.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
