A rare situation occurred in the fourth half of the match between the Boston Celtics and the Denver Nuggets. Catching the counter-attack of his teammates, Robert Williams in a favorable position successfully made a dunk to help the Boston Celtics shorten the gap to 94-107.
Robert Williams’ slam dunk caused the game to be delayed 30 minutes
Because Williams had a swing on the basket for a short time before landing, it damaged it. The referee must stop the game so that the technical staff can enter the field to fix the problem. It took more than 30 minutes for the basket to re-balance.
Boston Celtics defender Jaylen Brown said: “Although it took a long time to fix, when the game came back, the basket was still unbalanced. We have wasted too much time. That affects the game. In my opinion, the whole process was handled so poorly.”
Robert Williams’ slam dunk
After the match returned, the Denver Nuggets continued to maintain stability to end the match with a 123-111 victory. In particular, the most prominent is still the star Nikola Jokic with 30 points achieved along with 12 rebounds and 12 successful passes.
His height and ability to block is what makes Robert Williams a fearsome basket guard, something the Boston Celtics really need to compete against bigger teams like Cleveland, Philadelphia and Milwaukee.
