A week ago, Jarrett Allen was dealt from the Brooklyn Nets to the Cleveland Cavaliers as part of the James Harden trade. And now, he’s dunking all over his former team.
Allen threw down a nasty poster jam on the Nets — and specifically Joe Harris — on Friday night. He also had a powerful alley-oop dunk.

That’s certainly one way to get back at a team for trading you. Another way is just flat-out beating them, and Allen has done that too- in back-to-back games.
The Cavs — as 10.5-point underdogs — took down the Nets with a 147-135 double-overtime victory on Wednesday, and followed that up with a 125-113 win — as 6.5-point underdogs — on Friday night. Allen had 12 points, 11 rebounds, and four blocks in the first victory, before a 19-point (7-of-9 from the field; dunks help the efficiency!), six-rebound performance on Friday.
