VIDEO: Nicolas Batum gets in the pockets of Jonas Valanciunas

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

If you're going to step up to block off the lane, you've got to rotate over to the strong side of the floor a lot earlier than Toronto Raptors' big man Jonas Valanciunas did here. Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum drove the baseline and put one on Jonas with the right-handed dunk. As J.R. Smith would subtweet to Brandon Jennings on Twitter, Batum got in them pockets.
