Both teams boast high-flying wings galore, and the fast pace and the penchant that both teams can have for turnovers at times has been leading to fast breaks and a ton of fun for everybody involved (well, for the most part).
Pair that with each team's wealth of young, inexperienced big men and you've got yourself a recipe for a dunk targeted directly at someone's face.
In this particular situation, it was DeMar DeRozan driving his way into Timofey Mozgov's chest, as the 7'1" Mozgov found himself in a familiar situation.

Say what you will about Mozgov being habitually posterized, but at least he doesn't shy away from the challenges—taking the punishment full on instead. Call him a modern-day Shawn Bradley in the nicest way possible.
