Ja Morant throws unmissable dunk in Grizzlies win over Pacers
Ja Morant is back.
The Memphis Grizzlies superstar threw a thunderous dunk in the third quarter of his team’s 130-112 win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. The jaw-dropping dunk instantly became one of the most explosive highlights of the 2022-23 NBA season.
Before Saturday’s game against Indiana, Morant had a dunk against every NBA team already in his young career – except the Pacers. His remedy for this came at the expense of Pacers center Jalen Smith, who could only watch Morant fly over him.
The “Dunk Candidate of the Year” immediately gained traction on Twitter, prompting a response from Kevin Durant, among others.
Morant’s Grizzlies teammates also had a similar response.
Morant had 25 points, 10 assists and three rebounds in the victory. He also had a similar gravity-defying block on a shot attempt at the other end of the field.
The Grizzlies improved to 29-13 with the win, tied for first with the Denver Nuggets in the NBA Western Conference.
