Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Darius Garland has been on a roll in April. The 21-year-old scored a career-high 37 points on April 6 against the San Antonio Spurs, and tied his career-high in assists with 12 on Saturday against the Chicago Bulls (he also scored 22 points). And on Monday night against the Detroit Pistons, Garland made one of the most incredible passes in the NBA this season.
In the third quarter, Garland fired a baseball-esque high-velocity bounce pass to Collin Sexton for a layup. Check out this laser pass:

Garland finished with 23 points and six rebounds (while Sexton had 28 points and seven rebounds), but it wasn’t enough for the Cavs in a 109-105 loss to the Pistons. That of course doesn’t take away from how incredible the play is, and Garland seems to be developing into a potential star for Cleveland.
