Portland Trail Blazers star produces Block of the Year contender

Published Add your comment

Portland Trail Blazers power forward Thomas Robinson produced a magnificent Block of the Year contender during Sunday's comeback victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Corey Brewer rose high for the dunk when, from nowhere, Robinson swiped the ball clear from danger in spectacular fashion.

It was a remarkable piece of defensive work from the 22-year-old, who joined Portland last year after leaving the Houston Rockets.

And in the process of preventing the dunk, Robinson also set up a Portland counter-attack, which resulted in Will Barton finishing the swift play with a neat alley-oop.

The home side went on to win the match 108-97, while Robinson finished the game with 18 rebounds to go with 14 points in 33 minutes off the bench - a career-high for the ex-Sacramento Kings star.
