Watch Grizzlies' Ja Morant throws down ferocious one-handed dunk vs. Toronto Raptors
The Memphis Grizzlies guard got airborne in the first quarter by coming off a screen by Steven Adams then driving down the lane to finish with a thunderous, one-handed dunk with Toronto Raptors forward Chris Boucher flying by.
Boucher made a business decision to avoid catching the brunt of that dunk and making a true poster. But it made no difference to the roaring fans at FedExForum or the Grizzlies bench jumping to the feet.
Add that dunk to Morant's great week getting his first Nike commercial and his already impressive 2021-22 highlight reel as we approach a month since the NBA season began.
