On Wednesday night, both the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors improved on their surprising seasons. The Rockets put a major beat-down on the Utah Jazz, winning 125-80. Meanwhile, the Warriors outlasted the Toronto Raptors 114-102.

During their victories, each team provided a strong case for the dunk of the year.

Nearing halftime, James Harden submitted his entry with one of the most powerful dunks in recent memory.

Not to be outdone however, rookie Harrison Barnes made his case with yet another high-flying slam.

While both dunks were impressive, my vote would to Harden for the sheer power he delivered with his tomahawk jam.
