After running a well-executed offensive set, a cutter receives the ball as he jets down the middle of the lane, where he meets a defender at the rim. "Oohs" and "aahs" ensue, or silence fills the arena.

The sound of the rim-rattling or the whistle from a referee signaling an and-1 only make the play worse for the posterized defender. Teammates jumping up and holding each other back on the bench boost the dunker's ego further.

A poster jam can drastically change the game.
