Damian Lillard — the guy well out in front of the pack in the Rookie of the Year race — can do a lot. Great court vision, can shoot with range, has shown poise at the end of games, has good size and is learning how to defend at an NBA level...

And dunk.

He’s not thought of as much of a dunker but he threw this one down. Hard. And joked about it after the game saying basically “I told you I can dunk.”

He finished with 12 points, 10 assists and the Blazers got the win thanks to the Nuggets futility.
