Smith Jr. rips judges over controversial score
Mavericks guard Dennis Smith Jr. landed a score of 50 in his second dunk but it is not enough for him to continue in the next round.
Smith Jr. was given a score of 39 in his first double-pump dunk, judges Mark Wahlberg, Chris Rock, Lisa Leslie and Julius “Dr J” Erving gave Smith Jr. eight points each while DJ Khaled scored seven.

Smith took on Twitter to poke fun over his scores, comparing his 39 points over Victor Oladipo’s 31 point missed dunk.

Lack of appreciation of the double-pump dunk denied Aaron Gordon in his dunk contest with Zach Lavine in 2016.
