How do you turn the last two minutes of an NBA game into an impromptu dunk contest? Build a 22-point fourth quarter lead, wait until the other team has given up, and then unleash Nate Robinson.
By now, we've all seen plenty of Nate Robinson dunks, but there is still something awe-inspiring about watching the 5-foot-9 guard spring into the air to throw one down. So when he does it three times in the span of two minutes, we can't help but take notice.
But Robinson wasn't just about the dunks last night. He also led the Nuggets in scoring with 21 points and dished five assists while seeing just 20 minutes of floor time. If he had just found time to mix in a left-handed jump shot or a batshit step-back jumper, we might have seen peak Nate Robinson.
