Video: Jordan Clarkson nails 360 dunk vs. Wizards
Jordan Clarkson gave the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday what Isaiah Thomas could not during his brief time in The Land: a 360 dunk.
Early in the second quarter of tonight’s matchup with the visiting Washington Wizards at Quicken Loans Arena, Clarkson demonstrated his pesky defense and athleticism in one sequence when he picked the pocket of Wizards guard Tomas Satoransky before speeding down the court for a 360 slam.

Jordan Clarkson has been a nice addition to the Cavs, as he has injected the team’s second unit with much-needed offensive flair. Clarkson was among those that Cleveland acquired just ahead of last February’s trade deadline. The Cavs got Clarkson along with Larry Nance Jr. from the Los Angeles Lakers in a swap for Thomas, Channing Frye, and a 2018 draft pick. Clarkson has since fitted in well with the Cavs, thanks in large part to his acceptance of his role as someone who would provide energy off the bench, which was exactly what he did in that play.
Jordan Clarkson entered the Wizards game averaging 13.3 points, 2.2 rebounds, 0.7 steals, and 23.5 minutes per game in Cavs uniform. These numbers are not that much different from his numbers with the Lakers this season, but in Cleveland, the former Missouri Tiger gets a bigger chance of winning his first NBA title.
