14 dunks, tying the record for dunks in a single playoff game in the past 15 years.
The Lakers with the OK combination in 2001 were the last team to send 14 slam dunks in a single game in the playoffs, and they won the championship that year.
The Rockets sent out 14 deductions
The 2001 Lakers had Shaq O’Neal and Kobe Bryant.
At that time, O’Neal was the absolute No. 1 center and the absolute inside dominator. Many of his offenses were completed with slam dunks.
Kobe Bryant holds the ball outside, which can attract double-teams and create opportunities for O’Neal to dunk in singles or lobs.
In the 2001 playoffs, the Lakers contributed 14 slam dunks in a game and 12 slam dunks in a game, ranking the top two in the past 15 years.
In the past 15 years, there are 3 other teams that have 12 dunks in a single game in the playoffs, namely the Thunder in 2012, the Warriors in 2004 and the Lakers in 2008.
Today’s Rockets contributed 14 slam dunks, surpassing the Warriors, Thunder and other teams, tying the record set by the Lakers in 2001 for nearly 15 years.
The Rockets played crazily in the fourth quarter today, completing 7 dunks in a single quarter. Howard and others completely beat the Mavericks inside.
In the fourth quarter, Howard completed 5 alley-oop dunks.
It is worth mentioning that these alley-oop passes all come from Howard’s good brother Josh – Smith.
In addition to Howard, Corey Brewer and Smith each contributed 1 dunk in the fourth quarter.
In today’s game, Smith also made a slam dunk on the right side of the baseline.
At 4 minutes and 16 seconds into the first quarter, Smith got the ball on the right side of the basket, dribbled the ball directly to the inside, and facing Dirk Nowitzki’s defense, he pulled it up directly and it was a snap.
Nowitzki ran away in fright.
The Rockets sent so many slam dunks today, especially Howard sent so many alley-oops in the fourth quarter, mainly because of the Mavericks’ defensive problems.
The Mavericks have Tyson Chandler inside, but there is too little defensive communication between the players, causing them to frequently miss people.
