As the Golden State Warriors pulled away from the Cleveland Cavaliers late in the third quarter of Game 6 of the 2015 NBA Finals, Warriors center Festus Ezeli put an exclamation point on the run with an emphatic putback dunk.

Following up a Stephen Curry miss, Ezeli crashed the boards and threw down a one-handed slam while getting fouled from behind by Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov.

Ezeli made the ensuing free throw to cap off the three-point play and give the Warriors a 69-55 lead with just over three minutes to play in the third quarter.
