Watch Ja Morant destroy Jalen Smith with dunk of the year candidate

This is just nasty.

Ja Morant was weaving past defenders, the Pacers’ Jalen Smith was slow to recognize what was happening and late with his rotation, and the result was a dunk-of-the-year candidate.

That is insane.

“Yeah, easy,” Morant said when asked if that was his best dunk, via the Associated Press. “It’s what everybody has been waiting for. I finally made it.”

“I ain’t seen nothing like that one. That’s probably going to go down as dunk of the year,” Desmond Bane added.

Morant finished with 23 points and 10 assists, while Bane scored 25, leading the Grizzlies to a 130-112 win, their ninth victory in a row.
