Los Angeles Clippers Kawhi Leonard has had many great dunks in his remarkable NBA career, but one he threw down on Thursday night has to rank pretty high on the list.
The two-time NBA Finals MVP posterized Phoenix Suns seven-footer Deandre Ayton with a vicious jam in the third quarter.

What a dunk! An absolutely ridiculous play from Leonard, and two of the 14 points he had in the third quarter.
Ayton — the No. 1 overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft — has actually had a highly productive game into the fourth quarter (with 18 points and nine rebounds), but taking that soul-crushing jam puts a damper on his night.
