Has Maher ever dunked in a game?

For a guy who has a sensational pull up jump shot that is almost impossible to block, I've never seen him dunk in a game. Has anyone & can they post it??

Not in a game, but have seen him throw down some pretty nice ones in warm ups..

Maher, as a 19 yr old, had some of the best hops I have ever seen for white guy (better than Grant Yates even IMO). I saw him dunk in warmups of a U20s tournament but have to admin never saw him do it in a game.

I remember seeing him miss a dunk in a game. Fast break at the eastern end of the Dome. Since then I haven't seen him try!

I took a mate for his first Sixers experience. Told him to keep an eye on Maher, might see a nice dunk or 2. The people in front looked at me as if I was crazy, and my mate was a bit skeptical as well.

After a layup or 2, Maher gets the ball and goes up and throws it down...

People in front turned around and just said they had never seen nor heard that Brett could dunk till then.
I don't think they believed it after that either..

I seem to remember that just prior to playing for the Sixers that he had ankle surgery. That may have taken the edge off really throwing it down.

Its pretty pathetic that Maher is so respected when Gower's dunk stats almost triple his.

Seen him dunk a couple of times when he played for the Bald Eagle Bombers vs Lunch Cutters at a St. Clair Xmas canival. The game was in the bag so both teams finished it off with one of those throw the ball off the back board drills. Brett ended it with a nice dunk.
