Aaron Gordon gave Denver a late Christmas current Sunday evening.
Throughout the Western Convention faceoff, the Dec. 25 NBA recreation between the Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns went into time beyond regulation. Then, with about 30 seconds left on the clock and Denver main Phoenix 124–123, Suns defenseman Landry Chamet didn’t make a shot that may have given Phoenix the lead.
That is when Gordon, Denver’s ahead, grabbed the rebound and raced throughout the courtroom. There he met Shamet, who tried to dam off the alley. Regardless of the unimaginable distance from the sting, Gordon flew into the air. He continued to swim ahead whilst he made contact with Chamet and pushed the basketball into the online. The gang went berserk as Gordon fell to the bottom.
Tim Bontemps of ESPN tweeted that Gordon’s Christmas maneuver “simply ranks on the shortlist of the perfect recreation dunks I’ve ever seen, particularly given the second.”
Denver capitalized on a gravity-defying transfer because the Nuggets completed with a 128–125 win.
Gordon says it is the perfect dunk he is ever had within the recreation “due to the timing and the rating”.
The second was captured in a single shot by NBA photographer Garrett Ellwood. In it, when Gordon levitates in direction of the ring and Shamet is thrown to the ground, plainly each participant has disbelief on his face. It was as if Gordon was defying the regulation of physics in entrance of their eyes.
