Richard Jefferson may be 36 years old, but you wouldn’t know it by watching a couple of the plays he made late in the Cavaliers’ 109-108 Christmas Day win over the Warriors.
Jefferson sneaked by Kevin Durant for a dunk, and then was given a technical foul for taunting after winking at KD after throwing it down.

But that was merely a warm-up act for Jefferson, who later got way up before getting a massive slam dunk to go over Golden State’s Klay Thompson.

These were the only two shots Jefferson made all day in 11 attempts, but they were impactful ones down the stretch.
