Just when it seemed that the New York Knicks had turned their putrid season around with a spell of good form at the turn of the year, everything quickly came crashing down once again for Mike Woodson's crew.
A run of five consecutive victories saw the Knicks kick of 2014 in fine style, but the positivity proved to be shortlived and they have now lost five straight.
The latest loss came on Wednesday night, as the Philadelphia 76ers - spurred on by 34 points from Evan Turner - left Madison Square Garden with a 110-106 victory.
On a bad night for the Knicks in general, things got especially painful for power forward Andrea Bargnani. With under two-and-a-half minutes remaining in the third quarter and the Knicks down 79-74, the big Italian received a pass from rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. on the three-point line.
Bargnani proceeded to fool his defender with a timely pump fake, before driving through the lane and elevating for the big jam. Unfortunately for him, however, Philly duo Elliot Williams and Thaddeus Young stood in his path.
And, after rising up to complete the dunk, he appeared to lose momentum and humiliatingly came crashing down to the court in epic fashion. Luckily, he appeared to escape any injuries.
Watch footage of the dunk fail above - wonderfully and aptly set to R. Kelly's 'I Believe I Can Fly' by The Orange Hoops.
