Kenneth Faried Dunks Over Dwight Howard In Nuggets-Lakers Game (VIDEO)

The Lakers watched the Nuggets do a lot of dunking on Monday night. Some of those dunks, including the last basket Denver made, came from the man nicknamed, "The Manimal."

In the final minutes of Denver's 119-108 victory, Andre Iguodala cut underneath the basket and got the ball just outside the paint. Then he immediately tossed the ball towards the rim, and Dwight Howard, as Kenneth Faried came charging in. Faried scaled the 6-11 Howard and threw down a one-handed alley-oop dunk.

"Andre just had belief in me and I was like, 'You know what? I'm just going to throw it,'" Faried told Benjamin Hochman of The Denver Post after the game. "And Dwight did get a hand on it. I was kind of nervous, but I was able to secure it with two hands and just finish it."

The Nuggets outscored the Lakers 33-3 on the fast break and 78-50 in the paint, snapping their three-game winning streak. Here are some more of the dunks Denver made against L.A.
