dunks

There was loads of basketball Tuesday night, including nine NBA games, 10 men’s Top 25 teams in action and a historic UConn women’s game as well.

And, as you might expect, all that basketball produced some cool dunks.

We start in the NBA, where Steph Curry got put on a poster by Miami Heat forward James Johnson:

In college, it was Indiana’s OG Anunoby soaring over a defender to throw one down in the final seconds of a close game against Maryland:


But the dunk of the night comes from a high school player at Heritage Academy in Augusta, Georgia:

So in one night, we’ve seen one of the best players in the NBA get totally embarrassed by an anonymous bench player, a dramatic posterization in the final minute of an important college game and the backboard shattering into pieces Jerome Lane-style.

Not a bad night of basketball.
