NBA Play of the Day: Harrison Barnes Climbs Mount Pekovic

This happened so fast for Pekovic. David Lee made a gorgeous bounce pass to a rapidly cutting Barnes. Pekovic was there to help but Barnes was already upstairs. Harrison then gave Big Pek the vicious.

Honestly, I don’t know who to feel sorry for: Harrison Barnes of the Golden State Warriors or Nikola Pekovic of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Pekovic got dunked on, yes, but he also looks legitimately scary that he might have Harrison Barnes for dinner.

Nevertheless, Barnes and the Warriors came away with the win, 96-85. And so far, this is the early candidate for Dunk of the Year.
