Already Morant is there again.
The Memphis Grizzlies superstar hit a thunderous dunk in the third quarter of his team’s 130-112 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. The thrilling kill instantly became one of the most explosive moments of the 2022-23 NBA season.
Heading into Saturday’s game against Indiana, Morant had one kill against every NBA team in his young career except the Pacers. His remedy for that came at the expense of Pacers center Jalen Smith, who could only watch as Morant flew over him.
The “Dunk of the Year Candidate” 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 win. He also had a similar gravity-defying block on a shot attempt at the other end of the court.
The Grizzlies improved to 29-13 with the win, tied for first place with the Denver Nuggets in the NBA’s Western Conference.
