DENVER — Darrell Arthur turned back the clock Monday night at Pepsi Center. On Denver’s first possession of the fourth quarter, he set a screen at the top of the three-point arc, rolled to the rim and threw down a vicious one-handed alley-oop dunk.

On Monday morning, it was unclear if Arthur would even be able to play. The 10-year NBA veteran didn’t participate in shootaround due to right knee soreness. Yet there he was hours later throwing down his first dunk of the season as his team rolled past Charlotte 121-104.
