This is video of the Dallas Mavericks' Vince Carter faking an injury, making his defender think he was not an option on a possession, and then ending the play with a slam dunk.

The play took place right before halftime of the Mavericks' 100-97 loss to the Golden St. Warriors on Thursday night.

The Mavericks were playing for the last shot of the half, and Carter was in the corner, reaching down to check an apparent injury.

As it turned out, Carter was just fine, as his opossum playing lured his man to sleep, before he received a pass from point guard Darren Collison for the wide-open slam.
