It is, to be fair, impressive that falling behind 20-0 was not the Nets at their most woebegone last night. That honor belongs to the help defense on this JJ Hickson dunk, a true team effort:
Of course, no sooner do we find out who committed the two dumbest fouls of the season than JJ Hickson, at the end of the half last night against the Blazers, commits this travesty on Wes Matthews, behind halfcourt. Here now, the worst foul of the NBA season so far.
No one will blame you for not watching last night's Nuggets-Jazz game, as neither team has done much more than depress the hell out of their respective fan bases this year. But you are not allowed to go through life being unaware of this J.J. Hickson dunk, which turned poor Marvin Williams into a chalk outline.
J.J. Hickson didn't impress the Kings much this season, but he made his impact on Trail Blazers brass tonight with this thunderous slam on the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan. It was the kind of dunk Blake Griffin could appreciate, which made it convenient he was right there watching Hickson fly by. [ESPN]
