Explain One Play: That Kuminga reverse layup with bonus rare camera angle, plus his other Xmas dunks and near-dunks
A list of all Explain One Play articles and videos is at The new Explain One Play index.
Here is a New Year’s Eve present. I got quite a few requests to look at Warriors rookie Jonathan Kuminga’s play in the Christmas game against the Phoenix Suns on 2021.12.25.GSW-PHX. In a previous video we looked carefully at his defensive duel with Chris Paul. In this video, we look at:
that reverse layup, with a rare bonus camera angle not showed in-game, and a quick video comparison to Kobe Bryant
a massive near-dunk
a sweet up-and-under with JaVale McGee face grab
a clean looking three
plus some other plays and mishaps.
Co-starring Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Nemanja Bjelica, Otto Porter Jr, Chris Chiozza, and Quinndary Weatherspoon. Also with Jae Crowder, Devin Booker, and Chris Paul.
