The Boston Celtics defeated the Miami Heat 85-77 in an NBA Summer League game in Orlando, Fla., on Saturday, but not before Miami forward Tyler Honeycutt threw down an emphatic jam at the end of the third quarter.
The 23-year-old forward bolted toward the hoop in transition and caught Larry Drew’s full-court alley-oop for the slam. What’s even more impressive is that the dunk was a reverse.
The former UCLA star last played in the NBA in the 2012-13 season, but if he keeps making plays like that he might grab some attention. Who knows, maybe even LeBron James would like throwing the ball near the rim for this guy.
Honeycutt’s slam wasn’t the only impressive play of the game, as Celtics guard Phil Pressey left the Heat’s Shabazz Napier in the dust with a mean crossover.
