Let’s be honest here — MarShon Brooks made a nice up-and-under move then missed the shot. But did what your junior high coach always told you and followed his shot — that led to the dunk. Brooks has skills but no way he intentionally passed off the backboard, had it carom off the rim, then was there to catch it and throw it down.

Still, impressive play from the second year player.

Especially from a guy who almost wasn’t a Net last Thursday, except that nobody wanted Kris Humphries’ contract.
