2012 NBA Dunk Contest: Jeremy Evans Slams His Way To Crown

A field of four took center stage in the 2012 NBA Dunk Contest, and Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz won by receiving 29 percent of the more than 3,000,000 fan votes.

Evans defeated Chase Budinger of the Rockets, Paul George of the Pacers and Derrick Williams of the Timberwolves, with each participant having three dunks to impress.

Evans' signature dunk of the evening involved slamming home two balls fetched from feeds from teammate Gordon Hayward, who Evans jumped over in the process (as seen below).

 

Knicks guard Iman Shumpert was scheduled to participate in the contest -- and was due to receive a hand from Jeremy Lin -- but was forced to withdraw with a left knee injury. That opened the door for Evans, and the second year player from Western Kentucky made the most of his opportunity.

Below you can find many of the dunks from tonight's festivities:

 

 



And unfortunately for Williams, it wasn't all good on Saturday night.
