Watch Pacers' Ian Mahinmi dunk all over Rockets' Clint Capela

BY Jovan Buha • January 11, 2016

Indiana Pacers center Ian Mahinmi is enjoying a career year in his first season starting.

One of the benefits of playing with a team's starting lineup, especially as a big man, is the laughably easy buckets you sometimes luck into. 

Against the Houston Rockets on Sunday, Mahinmi caught a pass off a pick-and-roll from Monta Ellis and flushed home a monster slam on Rockets center Clint Capela's head:

Capela is a young shot-blocker, and his lack of knowledge and experience can come with some embarrassments.

But at least he tried, unlike Patrick Beverley, who simply ducked out of the way. That's all you can ask of a young big man. Only a handful of players could've stopped that Manhinmi dunk, and Capela might get there one day.

Mahinmi is averaging 8.6 points and 7.3 rebounds in 24.3 minutes per game.
