Of Luke Babbitt’s 276 career shot attempts, 145 have been three-pointers. According to Hoopdata.com, he makes approximately one half of a shot per game within 10 feet of the basket and has made fewer than 30 shots at the rim over the course of his entire career. A Youtube search of “Luke Babbit dunk” turns up first-page results like Brady Jardine swats Luke Babbit and Luc Richard Mbah A Moute dunks on Luke Babbitt, but not a single video of Luke Babbitt actually dunking (other than the one you’re about to see). While I can’t confirm with 100% certainty that Babbitt had never dunked a basketball prior to yesterday, I think it’s entirely plausible that the following jam represents the first dunk of his life.

No posters yet, but 10 of JaVale McGee's 12 first half points have come via dunk.
Also, Jason Maxiell now has 6 first half blocks, including two dunk rejections (Mozgov, McGee). Max with one poster, two anti-posters. I'm playing the hometown card, but it really does seem like Maxiell has an unusually solid sense of timing when it comes to blocking dunks.
