Toronto Raptors’ guard Terrence Ross has played very well lately.
The second-year veteran exploded for 51 points on 16-of-29 shooting from the field in 126-118 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. He followed that up by scoring 10 points and grabbing seven rebounds in a 104-103 victory over the Brooklyn Nets Monday and scoring 12 points, grabbing eight rebounds, dishing out four assists and blocking two shots in a 98-83 victory over the Orlando Magic Wednesday.
The Raptors, who have played very well as of late, entered Friday night having won four of their last five games.
They made five out of six when they cruised to a 100-90 victory over the Nuggets in Denver, a very difficult place to place, on Friday night.
Ross had another excellent game, finishing 18 points on a very efficient seven-of-10 shooting from the field. He also had three assists, three blocks and two steals.
The numbers, however, won’t be what everyone is talking about this weekend. Instead, the basketball world will be discussing Ross’ monster dunk over Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried.
Faried is one of the better rim protectors in basketball, which makes the dunk that much more impressive.
Ross is now averaging 10.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game this season.
