Warriors guard Klay Thompson threw down a poster dunk over Pistons forward Kyle Singler during Golden State’s 104-96 road victory on Monday.

With a little more than eight minutes remaining in the first quarter and Detroit leading 11-8, Thompson leaked out after a Pistons made basket.  Getting behind most of Detroit’s defenders, Thompson only had to beat Singler to the rim.

Rising for a right-handed dunk once he reached the protected circle, Thompson completed the slam over Singler, who challenged with his right hand. The highlight reel fodder sent Golden State’s bench into a frenzy.

Singler, meanwhile, went staggering backwards and wound up landing on the baseline photographers and Detroit’s cheerleaders.

Thompson finished with 19 points (on 8-for-12 shooting), three rebounds and two assists. Stephen Curry added 19 points (on 6-for-15 shooting), nine assists and eight rebounds for the Warriors.

Greg Monroe tallied a game-high 23 points (on 8-for-20 shooting) and eight rebounds for Detroit. Singler and Josh Smith each added 18 points in a losing effort.

Golden State improved to 35-22 with the win. Detroit dropped to 23-34 with the loss.

Worst gif ever. Blotchy and it appears that Singler fell due to momentum and the camera guys being positioned in his line and not due to being dunked on.
