Thunder star throws down vicious poster dunk

Published Add your comment

Oklahoma City Thunder fans won't have enjoyed losing to the out-of-sorts Denver Nuggets onThursday night, but they will surely have raised a smile after seeing Reggie Jackson slam home a pretty awesome dunk.

Scott Brooks' team fell 101-88 at Pepsi Center, despite Kevin Durant dropping 30 points. Point guard Jackson, a former Boston College Eagle who has stepped into a starting role for the Thunder in the absence of injured All-Star Russell Westbrook, was the team's second-top scorer with 16.

Undoubtedly his individual highlight on an otherwise disappointing night, though, was the slam that arrived just before half-time.

With over a minute left until the interval, the 23-year-old former 11th overall pick showcased his athleticism in fine style by driving to the hoop and throwing down a poster slam over the intimidating figure of Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried.

Given that the latter has a big height and weight advantage over the nimble Jackson, it is surely not one that he will want to see again.

Watch the video of the flashy dunk above - with a hat tip to Sports Illustrated for bringing it to our attention.
