“Austin Rivers had to throw the towel in after that Eastbay dunk!”: NBA Twitter applauds Greg Brown for his filthy dunk sealing the Blazers’ blowout over Denver
Portland Trail Blazers rookie Greg Brown stuns the crowd, breaking out the Eastbay dunk during the blowout win against Denver Nuggets.
On Tuesday night, the Portland Trail Blazers hosted the Denver Nuggets squad at the Moda Center. A contest, in which the Nuggets missed the likes of Nikola Jokic, Michael Porter Jr., and Jamal Murray, saw the Blazers win the clash 119-100.
It was a huge night for CJ McCollum, finishing the game with 32 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists, to help Portland grab their 9th straight home win. Despite CJ’s game-winning performance, it was Greg Brown III who had the limelight on him.
During the dying minutes of the clash, the high-flying rookie decided to entertain the crowd, breaking out an emphatic Eastbay dunk during the course of the game. Here, have a look at the clip.
