What do you get when you mix running full speed, no contact on the way to the basket, a healed ankle and a smaller defender making one of the worst decisions in his career? You get Tyreke Evans postering Gary Neal making him look like, well, a poster. Ya like a poster works.

This dunk was nasty. Once again Gary Neal has exercised poor judgement on which plays to take a charge and which ones to pretend he lost his man in transition.

Usually you don’t see dunk of the year candidates this late in the season, but Tyreke made a strong case last night against Blake Griffins Mozgov poster and JR Smiths ride em’ cowboy dunk on guess who, Gary Neal.
