Malcolm Brogdon LeBron James

Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks was both the best of times and the worst of times for LeBron James, but it was a great night for Malcolm Brogdon. James put up 34 points and 12 rebounds, including the go-ahead three-pointer in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 114-108 win, but he also got emphatically dunked on by Brogdon.

Of course, that’s a pretty impressive overall performance from James, and it was notable to see him hit a three (not always his greatest strength) at a crucial moment. Here’s the video of that:

However, LeBron’s night does come with an asterisk, as the relatively-anonymous Brogdon threw down on him in a big way:

Brogdon is not only a rookie, but a second-round draft pick, as he was taken 37th overall out of Virginia this past year. That wasn’t even his only great dunk of the night, as he also put up an impressive drive-and-dunk against Kyrie Irving:

As many Twitter users noted, he may have only finished with six points and five assists, but they were memorable points:

But hey, Brogdon said afterwards he didn’t know who he was dunking on:

It’s a good thing he did go up. James and the Cavaliers may have come away with the win, but Brogdon certainly got people talking with his ferocious dunks in this one.
