Toronto Raptors DeMar DeRozan Throws Down A Monster Dunk On Timofey Mozgov (Video)


This slam made me drop my water. Literally. I swear.

Welcome to your new poster, Timofey Mozgov. I better clear some space on the walls in my room, because this one is a keeper.

My goodness.

Early in the second quarter of Tuesday night’s Toronto Raptors vs Denver Nuggets game, guard DeMar DeRozan took the ball to the rack and THREW IT DOWN on Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov.

In other words, Timofey Mozgov just got…..welll….MOZGOV’D!

Surprisingly, this isn’t even the best dunk ever completed on Timofey, as Blake Griffin owns that distinction from over two years ago.

Regardless of that, this is without a doubt a candidate for the best slam dunk of the year in the NBA.

I’m not sure if it’s better than Harrison Barnes over Nikola Pekovic or Jeff Green over Al Jefferson, but it’s certainly up there.

Perhaps DeRozan should be joining teammate Terrence Ross in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest this Saturday night in Houston.

I love this game.
