Kenneth Faried finishes half-court alley-oop from Andre Miller (VIDEO)

The veteran Andre Miller may throw the best lob pass in the NBA right now. Chris Paul is right there, but Miller has a great court sense and is so accurate with his passes.

Kenneth Faried can finish. If your nickname is “manimal” you better know how to dunk with authority.

Combine them and you get the best dunk and maybe the best highlight out of Thursday night. That is a heck of a play and was part of the Nuggets beating the Jazz Wednesday in a battle of playoff teams...or at least close to playoff teams. The win kept the Nuggets as the three seed in the middle of the tight Western Conference, but it knocked the Jazz half a game back of the Lakers for the last spot in the West.
