CLEVELAND, Ohio — Perhaps the best dunk of the year for Larry Nance Jr. won’t come during NBA All-Star Weekend after all.
During the second quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ game against the Denver Nuggets, Nance seemingly used Nuggets backup center Mason Plumlee as his own personal dunk contest prop, skying over him for a thunderous one-handed jam that caused Cleveland’s bench to explode.

It was part of Nance’s scintillating first half in which he scored 14 points to go with five rebounds. He tallied two dunks as well.
