As Charles Barkley likes to point out, sometimes a “dunk by” gets credited as a “dunk on” a player.

Not here. Gordon Hayward dunks on Miles Plumlee. There is no question.

Hayward drives from the right wing and Plumlee recognizes it a second too late, is inside the restricted area, does a good job of just being vertical, but that’s not enough to stop this dunk.

Hayward finished with 24 points. Phoenix went on to win the game 100-93 behind 34 points from Marcus Morris. It was a key win for Phoenix, who stay one game ahead of New Orleans and three over Oklahoma City for the eighth playoff spot in the West.
