In the fourth quarter of the Denver Nuggets 133-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, rookie R.J. Hampton threw down what may become one of the best dunks of the entire NBA season.

Not only did Hampton throw down that vicious dunk, but he also put together another really solid performance. Hampton has now appeared in each of the Nuggets past eight games and has played over 17 minutes in each of the past three games.
Hampton’s best performance may have come tonight as he scored nine points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field to go along with four rebounds and three assists. Hampton also made one three-pointer and played with a massive amount of energy and explosives all game long.
Here’s another angle of that incredible dunk, what a performance by the rookie!
