Terrence Ross takes a while, but completes a brilliant behind-the-back-dunk

It took Terrence Ross several attempts to get this dunk right, but in the end, the judges decided to give him a 50 regardless.

It took a while for Terrence Ross to do his dunk correctly, but once he did, it was excellent. The Toronto Raptors' rookie finally completed his behind-the-back slam, a nod to J.R. Smith. Here is Ross' dunk.

This was preceded by several misses, but with a minute and a half to complete the dunk, Ross had plenty of time to get things right. In the end, the judges gave him a 50, excuses all of the previous misses.

AESTHETICS

Ross did a dunk that has been done before, but given his lanky frame, it was the appropriate beginning. Ross showed off his ability to glide to the rim with this one, taking a running start before finishing.

REACTION

SB NATION'S SCORE

I would have penalized Ross for taking several times to complete the dunk. Forty-seven seems appropriate given how many failed chances.
