The Ball Arena comes to life as a result of a spectacular dunk by Vlatko Cancar, which also creates comparisons between the two players, Julius Erving and Cancar.
From Julius Erving’s performance in the 1984 NBA All-Star Game, which was held in Denver, to Vlatko Cancar’s spectacular slam on Wednesday evening, which he accomplished by launching himself from just inside the free-throw line, this game has seen some incredible dunks throughout the years.
Mine was closer to the line for a free throw. “Don’t treat Dr. J that way,” he said, while appreciating Erving’s effort.
In any event, the spectators at Ball Arena appeared to take great pleasure in the flight path of the Slovenian small forward. The dunk got the fans going, and it was definitely the highlight of his 13-point effort in the home victory over the Houston Rockets for the second game in a row.
“Don’t get obstructed,” I was just thinking while I was walking. He went on to detail the sequence of events that led up to the throwdown, saying things like “I just leaped thinking for a layup but at the last minute I just changed.”
Cancar, who has emerged as the sixth player for head coach Mike Malone in recent games of the 2022-23 NBA Regular Season
Has put up three performances in which he scores in the double digits. In all, Cancar has played in six games. In the most recent couple of weeks, he participated in six games, averaging 22 minutes per game throughout the course of those contests. During this prolific span, other highlights included a couple of long-range buzzer-beaters in two consecutive games played against the Dallas Mavericks.
More excitement was to be had, according to him, as he vowed, “The same with my halfcourt shoots, I will work on [dunks].”
In his fourth year at Denver, he is now averaging 5.2 points, 1.5 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game. This puts him on track to set many NBA career highs throughout this season. After being taken with the 49th overall choice in the 2017 NBA draft, he didn’t join the Nuggets until 2019, which was two years after being drafted. The Basketball Champions League, the 7DAYS EuroCup, and the ANGT in Europe were all part of the previous experience.
