The Best Excuse For Being Thunderously Dunked On

It’s not that Marcin Gortat wasn’t interested in blocking a shot, he was just busy with other things at the time.

1. Kevin Durant put an exclamation point on a 41-point night with this colossal dunk over Phoenix Suns big man Marcin Gortat.

Pay attention to what happens after the dunk: An excited Kendrick Perkins trots over and slaps Durant in the face. Thanks for that, Kendrick.

2. Gortat had a pretty good explanation for his half-hearted attempt at stopping Durant.

All kidding aside, Gortat was a good sport about the whole ordeal, admitting to AZCentral Sports that “I ain’t going to deny; that was probably one of the top three dunks of the year.”
