Shannon Brown won’t be in the Dunk Contest at this year’s All-Star Weekend festivities, but don’t let that fool you into thinking he can’t throw down with the best of the league. Brown may not have had a career game, or even an above average game on Tuesday, but all it took was one high-flying dunk attempt to grab the highlight of the night amongst the NBA photos.

Brown and the Lakers handed the Utah Jazz one of their worst losses of the season with a final score 120-91, moving them to 11 1/2 games in front of the Phoenix Suns in the Pacific Division.

In other action, the Boston Celtics celebrated the return of big man Kedrick Perkins by extending their lead in the Atlantic Division with a win against the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers.
