troy williams dunk

Even the Denver Nuggets’ bench couldn’t contain their reaction at this one.

Troy Williams, playing in just his second game with the Rockets, went airborne off a James Harden miss during the third quarter of Wednesday’s game against Denver and dunked the ball right on Mason Plumlee’s frickin’ head.

Holy moly.

I don’t know what’s better: the dunk or Nene’s reaction.

Now, what do we think was worse for Plumlee: the emotional pain of getting dunked on here, or the physical pain of getting kicked in the groin by Markieff Morris a few weeks ago?

What may hurt more than anything is the Nuggets staying one game behind the Trail Blazers for the No. 8 seed in the West. The Jazz gave Denver a chance by throttling Portland on Wednesday, but the Nuggets proceeded to drop a close one in Houston, 110-104.
