Thanks to Russell Westbrook, we can add yet another epic moment to the catalog of fantastic play-by-play calls by Kevin Harlan. On Thursday night, the TNT announcer issued an exclamation right up there with his call earlier this season of that Metta World Peace dunk and his impression of The Penguin. With the Thunder trailing by five in the second quarter, the explosive Westbrook ran his man off a screen from Kevin Durant, drove through the lane and attacked the basket. Westbrook took off from just inside the free throw line and threw down an incredible one-handed dunk.
"OH MY GOODNESS." Harlan yelled as the rest of the crew joined, barely able to keep their composure.
From their reaction, one would think Westbrook pulled off a dunk similar to Blake Griffin's posterization of Kendrick Perkins. So, we thank Westbrook for providing us with another memorable Harlan call.
But was this the play of the night?
Lakers center Andrew Bynum, who dominated Boston on the glass with 17 rebounds, scored two of his 16 points with a circus shot to beat the buzzer at the end of the first half. Phoenix's Channing Frye threw down an amazing one-handed dunk of his own and Pau Gasol came up with a clutch block in the final seconds of overtime. Scroll through these plays and vote on which play you think was the highlight of the night!
