Nikola Pekovic posterized by Harrison Barnes during dunk of the year candidate [VIDEO]
Saturday night was get hammered time for Big Pek.
Saturday night, Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic had his very own Kodak moment.
During the second quarter of the Wolves' 96-85 loss to the Golden State Warriors, rookie Harrison Barnes banged on Pekovic during what Yahoo described as "the best dunk we've seen in the young 2012-13 NBA season."
Here's the footage:
That's certainly fun to watch, but for Timberwolves fans, the rest of the game wasn't. The loss to the Warriors was the Wolves' fifth in a row, dropping their record to a season-worst 5-7 after a promising start. They're now 0-3 since Kevin Love returned from a broken hand to supplement an injury-plagued roster.
