Kenneth Faried Rises High To Stonewall Harrison Barnes’ Dunk Attempt


Kenneth Faried isn’t the best defensive player on his team. Historically, in fact, the Denver Nuggets have fared better on that side of the ball when their star power forward is riding the pine as opposed to running the floor.

As eye-popping plays like this block of Harrison Barnes make clear, though, that doesn’t always have to be the case. Faried isn’t terribly long or especially strong, but he has the physical tools to be a serviceable defender at the very least – not to mention provide a highlight block or two every night.
