The 3 plays in sports everybody will be talking about today

Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Wednesday:

The James Johnson dunk. Johnson showed little regard for the dignity of the Detroit Pistons defence with this dunk. Of course, dunk truthers are going to quibble about whether or not this qualifies as a dunk or just “throwing” the ball. But I for one am not willing to challenge Mr. Johnson on that. His nickname is “Bloodsport” and he is a former MMA fighter.


The Christian Pulisic assist. The US Men’s National Team had a 1-1 draw with Panama in World Cup qualifying. Clint Dempsey scored the lone American goal, but it was the assist from the 18-year-old Pulisic that made it happen.  


The Hassan Whiteside game-winning tip-in. The Heat and Pistons are both fighting for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and Whiteside delivered a dagger to Detroit with a tip-in buzzer-beater to give Miami a one-point win.
