Obi Toppin of the New York Knicks won the NBA All-Star Weekend’s Slam Dunk competition Saturday night at Cleveland.

Toppin was a relatively easy winner, topping Juan Toscano-Anderson of the Golden State Warriors in the final.

Toppin, who played in college for Dayton, was given a total of 45 points by judges on his first dunk in the final.

Anderson had a score of 39 and then failed to complete a second dunk, so Toppin clinched the title before his second attempt in the last round.
