Rim-Rattling, Highlight-Worthy Dunks From Chris Newsome

Chris Newsome
Two of the best dunker in the league today are from the Meralco Bolts, Rey Gueverra and Chris Newsome. when the fate of the game is on the line, it was Newsome who answered the cal and delivered the most powerful in-game dunk from a local this conference.

The rookie proved last 1 October that he is above the rest in terms of high-flying acts after he rose for one poster dunk after another in Game 3 of the 2016 PBA Governors' Cup between the Bolts and the TNT KaTropa.

With under six minutes left in a tightly-contested game, the 26-year-old guard exploded to the rim and threw down a facial over TNT import Mychal Ammons.

Seconds later, Newsome topped himself with another gravity-defying dunk after jumping over veteran TNT forward Ranidel de Ocampo, who was looking to draw the charge but was called for a blocking foul, using the left hand.

"The first one felt a lot faster. I had to takeoff with one leg just to get it there," Newsome recalled. "The other one felt a little slow because I think I used two feet to gather myself, get up in the air and hang there a little bit. So I think it was the first one that caught me by surprise."

Newsome’s back-to-back dunks gave Meralco a 104-103 edge with 5:04 left on its way to a 119-113 win and a 2-1 series lead.

The former Ateneo star finished with 16 points, three rebounds and eight assists in close to 38 minutes of action. He also strengthened his case against TNT's Try Rosario in the Rookie of the Year (RoY) race.
