YouTube video of the play is here.

Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reports Aldridge's reaction.

"It was a charge, but he dunked on me," Aldridge said. "He dunked on me, but I think I had 25, 13, five, and three," Aldridge said. "So, you want to dunk on somebody or you want that?"

"I told him it was a good dunk," Aldridge said. "But I would rather get the W and the numbers. It was a good play, though."

Joe Freeman of The Oregonian with more.

"He dunked on me, but I think I had 25, 13, five and three," said Aldridge, referring to points, rebounds, assists and blocks. "So you want to dunk on somebody or do you want that? I'm not going to worry about it. I've been in the league long enough to not be bothered by that."

Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer has Mullens' reaction.

That Mullens tomahawk over LaMarcus Aldridge in the first half was pretty
sweet.

"I kind of surprised myself,'' Mullens said. "I really thought it was going to be a charge.''

Actually, Aldridge was in full back-pedal, trying not to get hurt.
