Video: Cavs announcers Fred McLeod, Austin Carr roast Steven Adams’ dunk attempt
The Oklahoma City Thunder and Cleveland Cavaliers faced off Wednesday night for the first time this season. Thunder center Steven Adams tried to posterize Cavs guard Rodney Hood, but he missed the mark pretty bad.

“It’s a good thing the backboard is bolted down,” Cavs play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod said on the attempt.
This was a pretty hilarious sequence and one which could end up on an episode of “Shaqtin’ A Fool.” However, Adams and the Thunder got the last laugh.
OKC won 95-86 to drop the Cavs to a dismal 1-10 on the season. Adams finished with 13 rebounds (five offensive), nine points, two blocks, two steals and two assists.
While the missed dunk by Adams may have been funny at the time, the Cavs certainly aren’t laughing given that 1-10 record, with their only win coming against the lowly Atlanta Hawks.
However, if we want to be positive here, let’s not forget the nice defensive play by Hood. He had a decent game against the Thunder, but he does need to shoot more. He only attempted seven shots on the night, making three of them.
Hood finished with 11 points, five rebounds and four assists for the game. The 26-year-old is only scoring 12.3 points per game for the season, which is way too low given the departure of LeBron James and the injury to Kevin Love.
