While the 111-109 squeaker of a victory was impressive enough, especially since it was due to Morant’s last-second heroics, his dunk earlier in the game is getting a lot of attention.
Why is that?
Well, you just have to see it to believe it.

He caught some serious air as he dunked over Malik Beasley of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
It was an incredible play, yet another showstopper from Morant, and it got the crowd on its feet.
If this is the sort of stuff we can expect for the rest of the playoffs, we are all in luck.
Morant Moving On?
Following Tuesday’s victory, the Grizzlies are just one victory away from beating the Timberwolves and moving onto the second round of the playoffs.
If that happens, Morant and his Grizzlies will likely be taking on the Golden State Warriors.
That will be a tough matchup and will require more explosive plays from Morant and the rest of his squad.
This means that plenty more huge dunks from Morant could be in the near future.
Morant has been doing stuff like this all season long.
He may not be the largest guy on his team but he is playing like a 7-foot-11 center with some of these dunks.
The way he catches air and posterizes the competition is shocking and promptly goes viral.
Even those who aren’t rooting on the Grizzlies have to admit that Morant’s dunk on Tuesday was something worth watching.
The Grizzlies are closer to putting the Timberwolves away and Morant just keeps getting better and better.
