Defenders should always make sure they know where Denver's J.R. Smith is on the court. When they lose him, the Nuggets guard makes them pay.
In the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons, point guard Ty Lawson drove to his right and attacked the basket. On the other side of the court, Smith used a screen to get away from his man. As Lawson drew a double-team, Smith was given a wide open lane to the hoop and Lawson found him. Smith threw down an incredible dunk to extend Denver's lead to 82-74. The Nuggets went on to win 109-100. Scroll down to watch the video.
