Ja Morant had already blessed the NBA evening with an all-time highlight once his astounding, above-the-box chasedown block on Bennedict Mathurin was ruled legal.
And then the dunk happened.
Ja saw daylight. Jalen Smith went up to contest. Ja reared back. And back. And back.
The detonation set off NBA Twitter. Here’s a sampling of the reaction:
