Ja Morant's NBA playoff dunk is unreal.

Malik Beasley has guts. Ja Morant was barreling down the lane and loading up for a poster dunk, so the Timberwolves guard didn't need to charge

He could have either let Morant have his slam or tried to foul him before he went up.

Instead, late in the third quarter of a crucial Game 5, Beasley went for an offensive foul. In a 2-2 first-round series, the Wolves had a double-digit lead and every possession felt vital.

If Beasley was fouled, Morant would have his fourth foul and Minnesota would get one more possession.

But Beasley escaped. Statistically, Morant was the most impressive player in the FedEx Forum

The Grizzlies were down big, but Morant's dunk energised Memphis in a 111-109 win to take a 3-2 series lead.

Morant's dunk at that moment is unique. After suffering a thigh contusion in Game 2, Morant had a quiet scoring night against a locked-in Grizzlies defence.
