Shannon Brown produced the most spectacular play of the game and it happened late in the second quarter Wednesday night.

Brown began the play by stealing a pass intended for Golden State’s Corey Maggette down low.

Brown then raced up court, took off from just inside the free-throw line and threw down a one-handed dunk over Warriors center Mikki Moore, who fell to the ground.

Brown’s Lakers teammates leaped off their seats on the bench. The fans inside the Honda Center in Anaheim stood and cheered.


Brown, who hit the ground after his dunk, sat on the court and clapped his hands three times.

During a timeout, a fan in the stands yelled at Moore, ‘You got dunked on.’

Moore responded, ‘It happens.’
