NBA Slam Dunk Contest 2013 Video: Watch Terrence Ross' Winning Jam

Terrence Ross took home the 2013 Slam Dunk Contest title after beating Jeremy Evans in the final round.

Evans was the defending champ, so he presented stiff competition to the Toronto Raptors guard. Ross' final dunk was the difference between the two.

He took a young kid out of the audience. Jumping over a child isn't all that impressive, so Ross managed to put the ball between his legs before finishing with his right hand.

The two didn't get any scores for their final dunks, as the voting was left up to the fans. Ross managed to get 58 percent of the vote.

The dunk contest itself was disappointing until the final round. James White and Gerald Green, in particular, underwhelmed after failing to register dunks on their second attempts.

Ross and Evans managed to put on a good show with their final two dunks, thus somewhat saving the contest this year.

Evans might have had the most creative dunk in the final round, as he dunked over a painting, which was of him dunking over a painting. It was very original in addition to being a solid dunk. His second dunk was impressive as well, taking a pass from a seated Dahntay Jones and throwing it down with his right hand.

It was the totality of Ross' performance in the championship, though, that put him over. His first dunk of the championship round was an homage to Vince Carter. Ross donned a No. 15 Raptors jersey while slamming home a 360-degree slam after taking a pass off the side of the glass.

Ross joins Carter as the second Raptors player to win the Slam Dunk Contest.
