VIDEO: Nuggets' Wilson Chandler throws down with two hands

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler has been on a tear in March. After shooting 39.7 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from 3-point range over the first three months of the season, Chandler has been lighting up his opponents. In eight games in March, he's shooting 53.8 percent from the field and 55.6 percent from 3-point range.

On Friday night against the Memphis Grizzlies, Chandler went on a different type of tear; he tried to tear the rim down. After a pick-and-pop with Ty Lawson, Chandler received the pass, drove down the lane and rose up for a monster two-handed dunk. He came down the lane so ferociously and got so high on his dunk that even Marc Gasol seemed to get out of the way and avoid being on a Chandler poster.

It would have been cool to see Gasol challenge him, though. Wilson looked like he was trying to create another Tom Chambers moment on the floor.
