Barnes unloads Dunk of the Year candidate
by Michael Katz, USA TODAY Sports
Have you seen what Harrison Barnes did to Nikola Pekovic last night?
You, dear reader, are in for a treat. It’s only November, but this is a sure-fire Dunk of the Year candidate.
Watch the video below:
What is there to say, really? Well, here is some of the best Twitter reaction:
* The Basketball Jones’ JE Skeets: Harrison Barnes climbs, dunks on Mount Pekovic.
* Yahoo’s Eric Freeman: Harrison Barnes put Nikola Pekovic on a brand management PowerPoint presentation.
* Bay Area News Group’s Marcus Thompson: Barnes said that was the best dunk of his basketball life. “By far.”
Yup, we’d have to agree with that. Vicious.
Barnes, the North Carolina product, is averaging 10.7 points and five rebounds in 28 minutes a game so far this season. He recorded his third career double-double (10 points, 11 rebounds) against the Wolves on Saturday.
