LAS VEGAS — Warriors forward Harrison Barnes threw down a left-handed dunk over Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson late in the third quarter of the USA Basketball Showcase on Thursday.

With less than a minute remaining in the third and USA White holding an 87-77 lead, Barnes attacked the paint to his left off the dribble from the right wing. As he approached the protected circle, Barnes jumped into a cruising lefty finish, as Anderson extended his right arm to block the shot. Barnes finished over the top of Anderson’s challenge, cutting USA White’s lead to eight points.

Barnes, 21, was a lottery pick in the 2012 draft. He averaged 9.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 81 appearances for Golden State last season.
