Video: Cavs’ Alonzo Gee’s put-back dunk against the Lakers

If you did not stay up to see the Cavaliers take on the Los Angeles Lakers, we have you covered with the lone highlight. Cleveland Cavaliers high-flying forward Alonzo Gee provided Staples Center fans a put-back dunk against the hometown Lakers.  Gee finished with 14 points, four rebounds, and three steals, but the Cavaliers would fall to the Lakers by 20 points, 113-93, snapping Los Angeles’ six-game losing streak.

Kudos to the Lakers’ broadcast team for claiming that the dunk occurred because Gee was being guarded by cement-shoed point guard Steve Nash.

On the season, Gee has started all 39 games for the Cavaliers and has averaged 11.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals. Gee had a bit of a cult following last season around the time that the Slam Dunk Contest rolled around, but failed to get any recognition for his above-the-rim antics.

    this is a great idea. the rest of the year you should just put the one or two highlights per game that occur up and pretend the rest isn’t happening.

    The Lakers broadcast team is correct that this one is Nash’s fault: He let Gee go right by him. Notice, though, that even if Gee hadn’t made the play, TT was in position to at least contest the rebound.

    Gee has been a few of the reasons to watch this year.
