Video: Brandon Roy Decides It's Time To Dunk
By caseyholdahl Posted in: BrandonRoy
We saw two things Wednesday night at the Rose Garden that have been rarities this season. One was a blowout victory, an occurrence that has been relatively scarce this season, or at least it feels that way after a plethora of easy wins last season at home. The second was a Brandon Roy dunk, something that is rare regardless of the season. He just doesn't do it that often, but when he does, it's usually with extreme prejudice.
And Wednesday night, for no other reason than wanting the crowd at the Rose Garden to know that he still could, Roy caught a long rebound, elevated over, around and through David Lee, finishing with a vicious one-handed jam that awoke the fans from a blowout-induced slumber. It was the kind of dunk that you're going to see over and over again in-arena, and with good reason.
