J.R. Smith Torches Anthony Bennett For Nasty Dunk

Here we have J.R. Smith turning Cavs rookie Anthony Bennett from player to spectator. First, he blows by Bennett with a pretty gnarly crossover and then continues on to the rim where he finishes it off with a windmill dunk. Clean, quick and decisive.
