Victor Oladipo DESTROYS Dwight Howard With Monster Dunk
Victor Oladipo may be seven inches shorter than Dwight Howard, but that didn't stop him from posterizing the all-star center with a double pump two-hand jam. Jeremy Grant enjoyed the dunk so much that he wanted to join in on the fun with a slam of his own. Russell Westbrook recorded his SIXTH straight triple-double in the OKC Thunder's 102-99 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
After Olapido has been out for seven games due to the wrist injury he had against the Boston Celtics. It’s true that their record has dipped down, however, the Thunder are definitely better off now because he got injured.
And here’s how. After he was out and on the bench, they all had to step up their games to fill his shoes. This means that the bench play was much stronger, almost living to its full potential.
You could see this in the Christmas Day play against the Timberwolves. Don’t think we are trying to bad-mouth the guy, it’s just obvious that it worked for the whole team, and it is time for him to come back. If only they don’t get lazy and comfortable with his defense, they are up for something big.
