This is one of those highlight dunks where the guy getting dunked on deserves a little credit.

Detroit’s Greg Monroe stole the errant pass and was off to the races in transition (with numbers) and John Wall was the only Wizards’ player able to get back in a defensive position. A lot of players just would have let the dunk happen and taken the ball out of bounds, but Wall to his credit sizes Monroe up for the block.

It just doesn’t work out for him as Monroe powers through him for the impressive throwdown.
