How To Watch NBA Dunk Contest 2018

Smith had to settle for third with 89 combined points on his two dunks in the first round.

He racked up an aggregate score of 196 across four total dunks and beat out Larry Nance, Jr.in the final round.

At the 2015 Slam Dunk Contest, Oladipo walked out for his first dunk while singing "New York, New York" in a full tuxedo. "We talk about a couple of dunks here and there so we got something cooking".

Dominique Wilkins (1990) - A nine-time NBA All-Star, Wilkins was one of the biggest stars of the 1980s and early '90s, especially known for his dunking abilities. Going with Nance, whose dunk over Kevin Durant might be the best dunk of the season, could be the best choice.

Mitchell's dunks are seriously impressive and incredibly smooth. From the multiple attempts per dunk to the props and lack of stars, fans had plenty to say about the underwhelming dunk contest Saturday night.

For my money, Nance had the dunk of the night, his first in the Finals, a double off-the-backboard throwdown that you had to see on replay to get (it wasn't as evident in the building what he had done until it was re-shown on the big screen). A legacy dunker (Nance's old man won the NBA's first dunk contest back in '84), Nance Jr. has built his dunking reputation off of poster dunks. "I've seen a few of the things that he can do that I don't believe he's revealed to the public, and I'm looking forward to it with great anticipation".

The NBA All-Star Break brings one of the most anticipated events in sports in NBA All-Star Weekend.

Netanyahu condemns Polish PM for 'Jewish perpetrators' comment
Other officials in Israel, already alarmed by the new Polish legislation, also spoke out against Morawiecki's comment. Dialogue on these hard chapters of our history is essential - a dialogue we hope to continue with Israel.

"I did some dunks", Smith said in his best aw-shucks voice.

Unfortunately for Smith, the reason he didn't advance to the next round was because of the 39 on his first dunk.

On Saturday, we'll find out whether Nance Jr. will opt to salute his dad by wearing his jersey, dunking two balls at once, neither - or even both. It's not enough to start drafting conspiracy theories about Paul George coming back to the Indiana Pacers but it does show that there is mutual respect between him and Victor Oladipo.

The contest, like Sunday's All-Star Game, took place at Staples Center, where Nance Jr. played his home games for the Lakers until he was traded to the Cavs last week.

Dennis Smith Jr.: Score, 50.

And in the skills challenge that kicked off the night's activities at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Spencer Dinwiddie of the Brooklyn Nets won the skills challenge over Lauri Markkanen of the Chicago Bulls. His three-point accuracy is down a bit this year, but he's the owner of one of the prettiest shots in the National Basketball Association, and he advanced to the championship round in his only other three-point contest appearance in 2014.
