James Harden dunks on Aron Baynes and Rockets bench loves it (Video)

The Houston Rockets took the San Antonio Spurs to school on Thursday, and one of the highlights of the game came in the third quarter when James Harden dunked on Aron Baynes.

Harden took a beautiful bounce pass baseline and then jammed all on Baynes’ grill. The dunk was enough to get the Rockets players up off the bench in celebration.

Unrelated to this play, this may be the Rockets’ year. They have a talented team and it’s the second year of Harden and Dwight Howard playing together. Plus they caught a nice break with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook being hurt. I would not be surprised if they made it to the NBA Finals and even won the whole thing.

James Ennis dunks all over Rasual Butler (Video)

The NBA season opened up for most teams on Wednesday night, and it didn’t take long for us to get our first highlight-reel dunk.

James Ennis, a second-year player for the Miami Heat out of Long Beach State, gave us one heck of a highlight with a nasty dunk on Rasual Butler in the second half of his team’s game against the Wizards.

Ennis got so high he nearly tea-bagged Butler:

It’s even better in slo-mo:

Most of us probably didn’t even realize Butler was still in the league. That’s probably not the way you want to remind everyone that you are.

Ray Allen even surprised himself on huge dunk (Video)

Ray Allen dunk

Ray Allen had a pretty excellent Game 1 of the NBA Finals for the Miami Heat against the San Antonio Spurs, and he was so good he may have even surprised himself a bit.

Allen got a steal late in the third quarter and raced up the court in transition. He shoved Marco Belinelli out of the way, and then he raised up for the huge dunk. Danny Green wanted no part of him.

Jesus proving once again that he still got game. And some funky eyes.

DeMar DeRozan dunks all over Kyle Singler (Video)

DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors is one of the more explosive leapers in today’s NBA. Attempting to take a charge when he takes flight or trying to block one of his dunks generally doesn’t end well for the defender.

Timofey Mozgov found that out last year.

Late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game between the Raptors and Detroit Pistons, it was Kyle Singler who ended up on the wrong end of a highlight when (for some unknown reason) he decided it would be a good idea to jump with DeMar DeRozan. The result was DeRozan dunking all over the former Duke star and an excited broadcast team of Jack Armstrong and Matt Devlin.

At this point, it was already too late to reconsider.

DeAndre Jordan dunks on Serge Ibaka (Video)

DeAndre Jordan has a limited offensive game, but he has been known to throw down some massive dunks on a regular basis. On Wednesday, he got Serge Ibaka with a huge dunk in the second quarter of the Clippers-Thunder game.

Look at the still on this one. I mean Jordan literally had the upper hand:

If you thought that was good, a few minutes earlier Blake Griffin faked out Russell Westbrook and then dunked hard:

James Young dunks on half of UConn’s defense (Video)

Just when UConn was starting to pull away from Kentucky in the second half of the NCAA Tournament’s National Championship Game, James Young did his best to regenerate some momentum.

The freshman guard threw down just a ridiculous dunk over about half of UConn’s defense to give the Wildcats a much-needed bucket. He even got Amida Brimah to be called for a fourth foul on the play!

Look at what he had to dunk over:

And he still made it happen.
