Through-the-legs dunks are amazing even in an empty gym, but how about when they’re actually in-game jams?

The New York Knicks’ Obi Toppin threw down such a dunk in Wednesday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers, and he did so when the game wasn’t even out of hand.

With New York trailing 42-35 in the second quarter, Toppin got the ball on a fastbreak and proceeded to throw down a between-the-legs jam.

1. That’s an amazing play.

2. It takes guts to try that in-game, in a non-blowout.

3. Imagine what Tom Thibodeau would’ve done if Toppin bricked the dunk.
