It wasn’t quite “cock that joint back, bang on ’em,” but James Johnson threw down an awesome dunk against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday.
Swung the ball while guarded by Will Barton, Johnson left little doubt of his intentions, taking one dribble before attacking. He used his inside shoulder to gain the edge to the rim on Barton and then has no concern for the Nikola Jokic help at the rim, dunking all over the young big man.
Returning from a one-game absence due to a sore Achilles, Johnson played four minutes on Thursday. He scored four points and grabbed three rebounds, a stat line sure to draw ire of fans wanting to see him featured in a larger role.
