On Saturday, the Golden State Warriors knocked off the Minnesota Timberwolves by a tally of 96-85 at the Oracle Arena. They did so thanks in small part to this amazing one-handed slam by rookie forward Harrison Barnes.
The play occurred near the end of the second quarter when Barnes received the ball in full stride and then delivered an authoritative flush over Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic. It was one of those dunks that made you jump out of your seat regardless of which team you were rooting for. As for Pekovic, I'm pretty sure he'll be having nightmares about the play for weeks to come.
Barnes, a North Carolina Tar Heels product, finished the game with a double-double after recording 10 points and 11 rebounds in a team-high 39 minutes of action.
The Warriors outscored the visiting Timberwolves 26-11 in the final quarter to secure the come-from-behind victory.
