Another night, another crazy NBA playoff game. The Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers went to overtime for the third time in the four games played thus far, and Portland was able to notch the first home win for either team.

Portland also was able to notch a ridiculous block on a dunk attempt by Dwight Howard, courtesy of Thomas Robinson. Howard caught a second-half lob pass and went to dunk the ball in the same motion, only to have Robinson swoop in from the left side and get all ball. Again, this was Dwight Howard, aka Superman, arguably the NBA’s finest physical specimen, attempting to dunk a ball. With both hands. And Robinson just was having none of it.

Remarkably, this was probably only Robinson’s second-best block of the season. The best had to have come on this crazy play against the Timberwolves earlier this season. No, not the first block. Yeah — THAT one:

 

This former editor and part-time writer at The Post is now happy to prove that if you combine 'blowhard' and 'blaggard,' you get 'blogger.' He previously had used 'Desmond Bieler' as his byline, but feels that shortening the first name to 'Des' nicely conveys his ever-decreasing gravitas. He also covers Fantasy Football.
