Video: Danilo Gallinari’s Amazing Behind-the-Back Assist

Gallo somehow finds Kenneth Faried.

The Nuggets took on the Celtics last night, during which Danilo Gallinari’s 20 points led Denver to an impressive home victory. Perhaps equally impressive: this behind-the-back dish, from Gallo to big man Kenneth Faried underneath the hoop. Crazy.

    Holy crap. Best assist I’ve seen in a long time.

  • Jer Dawg

    Was waiting for a lob, but that dime was tremendous. I love a fancy pass more than the dunk.

    Larry Bird-esque.

    The stats don’t fully reflect it because Denver is built on the efforts of many different contributors, but Gallinari has the makings of an incredible player.


    @Dagger how was it?

    nice. Somewhere Jason Williams is smiling. Or watching highlight clips from his Kings days. I have no idea what he’s up to.

    Did someone just put Larry Bird and Danilo Galinari in the same sentence? Dumb!

  • jayrose

    Well done Galinari well done indeed

  • John Wall Jr


    almost reminded me of the Rondo Pass during a game last summer

  • Randy Brown

    Yeah I think there’s some luck involved here, no way he knew Bass wasn’t paying proper attention


    Lucky pass by that Gal.

  • LA Huey

    Gorgeous pass.

  • fruizm


  • abaci

    what a pass

  • Valerio

    yeah…..lucky……I mean….Gallo looks at faried, sees that pierce isn’t guarding the pass and that bass is paying attention at faried nd at the man cutting the centre of the floor, thinking that gallinari will pass the ball to him…..and then he makes a perfect behind the back pass……how can you says this is luck????
