SportsCenter’s ‘Top 10 Plays’ Rewards Defense, Nick Young and His Dunk Suffer

Updated: March 14, 2012

SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays,
late-night on March 13, 2012:

#10… a guy on Iowa’s basketball team hitting a no-look, granny-style shot in practice from the opposite free-throw line…

#9… a hockey goal…

#8… a halfcourt alley-oop, Iowa basketball…

#7… DeMarcus Cousins spinning by David Lee and dunking…

#6… Russell Westbrook vicious dunk on the Rockets…

#5… bro in a backwards hat flicks a frisbee as someone pole-vaulting catches it…

#4… DEFENSE! Roddy Beaubois makes a strip of Nick Young in transition and saves it for the steal…

#3… Marvin Williams dehumanizing Andre Miller at the rim

#2… a soccer goal…

#1… Matt Hendricks shoot-out game-winner for the Caps!


Where was Nick Young’s dunk from Tuesday night against the Mavericks? I gave it the much ballyhooed “no doubt” on Twitter… in that it would be on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays.

Guess not. Defense wins, dunks count as two points. But it was a very, very nice dunk. And bonus for Nick, he was involved in both plays anyway.

In video form…

    Who gives AF? Call me when the team puts together a decent win streak.

    Too many dunks make it onto the top plays anyway. I’d rather see good defense.
