Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

Andray Blatche misses wide open dunk (VIDEO)


The Nets continued to roll on Friday with an easy win over the Cavaliers, and with Brooklyn comfortably ahead midway through the fourth, that was apparently enough for Andray Blatche to completely lose focus.

After receiving the pass from Alan Anderson, Blatche had the ball all alone under the basket, but somehow missed the throw-down after going up for the dunk on the other side.

Blatche has been known to showcase some unusual offensive prowess during Nets blowout victories this season, but this time he made the highlight reel for all the wrong reasons.
