Bad loss for DeRozan, he really didn’t deserve to lose even though he didn’t bring his A-game. When he said he was saving stuff for Saturday night he wasn’t kidding. A between-the-legs left-handed windmill gave him a 42 which was good enough for second after Robinson, who got the better score because of the height factor. The second DeRozan dunk was a 50, Weems laying it off the side of the board and DeRozan slamming it windmill-style. Was it a 50? Probably not, but it was clearly the best dunk of the round and Weems needs to be given credit for executing the pass. As Barkley said, “When Dominque Wilkins’s gives you a 10, you’re doing something right”.

More than once. - Were in disbelief when Amir hit a three
