Something unexpected happened early in the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s Game 1 matchup between the Grizzlies and Thunder. It involved Caron Butler.
The former Bucks forward, and current member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, blew past a leaping Courtney Lee for a monster one-handed dunk. In fact, Butler threw it down with such shear force that he lost his balance and was unable to stick the landing. Even so, pretty impressive stuff from the 34-year-old.
Butler finished with nine points (3-7 FG) in 31 minutes in the 100-86 Thunder victory. Check out the video below, courtesy of The Oklahoman‘s Anthony Slater:
