San Antonio Spurs forward Rudy Gay had the entire AT&T Center roaring Sunday night when he had a clear path to the rim and exploded for a monster dunk during the team's 104-92 win over the Warriors.

However, it wasn't just Spurs fans who were left amazed at Gay's rim-rocking dunk.

“That was crazy," said guard Bryn Forbes following the game. "That was extremely athletic."

Aside from the highlight-play of the game, Gay was reinserted into the starting lineup and finished with 19 points and five rebounds in 30 minutes. He provided tough defense on Golden State's Kevin Durant helping the Spurs hold him to 8-25 shooting for the game.

Said Gregg Popovich, "I mean, nobody can cover Kevin and stop him, but Rudy did everything he could to make it a little bit tougher for him."

Gay is experiencing a resurgence this season, averaging 14 points, 7.5 rebounds and and 1.7 assists through 11 games. In his last three outings, he is averaging 19 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 63 percent shooting from the field.

"Rudy [Gay] has been playing great overall, especially on the offensive end he has been dominating," Forbes said. "That makes the game a lot easier than without him.”

Gay also hopes there's more to come from him on the court.

"As long as I’m out there, I got the minutes and will continue to help this team," Gay said.
