Yes Morant donned his cape and put Malik Beasley on a poster for the NBA Playoffs Dunk and maybe Dunk of the Year!
Yes, Morant is no stranger to flying over the edge — one could even argue that there are few guards in the NBA with the kind of hops the Memphis Grizzlies star brings to the table.
Minnesota Timberwolves winger Malik Beasley found out about Jas Bunny the hard way in Game 5.
With the T’Wolves leading late in the third quarter, Morant saw a lane with the ball at the top of the key and made a beeline for the rim. Beasley unwisely thought he was trying to press charges. Instead, he was on the wrong end of a poster that will be featured on highlight reels for years to come with a bonafide Dunk of the Year from Morant.
Yes Morant popped up all over Malik Beasley and NBA twitter athletes raged
Skip Bayless, Patrick Mahomes, all NBA twitterers and everyone else lost their mind after this poster.
Unfortunately for the stalwart Grizzlies, that dunk was only worth two points and they needed more than that. With the series tied 2-2 before this game, Minnesota had basically been in control from the opening tip. Morant would need to don the cloak bigger to ensure they don’t get eliminated in Game 6.
