Russell Westbrook with dunk of the year candidate on Thon Maker

Damn. That is nasty.

Russell Westbrook may have thrown down the dunk of the season Friday night, driving the lane with Thon Maker coming over late, and there was nothing he was going to do to stop it. He crushed it.

That dunk may have been overlooked considering the end of the game controversy about Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s game-winning dunk — he stepped out of bounds on his baseline drive to the rim — but it shouldn’t be forgotten.
