Tatum Dominates the Sixers
Helping gain a 2-0 series lead, Jayson Tatum was in his bag making 8-12 three-pointers on his way to a team-high 33 points.
Jayson gave everybody something to “Taco Bout” with the Air Jordan 34 PE.
Doncic Controls Series Against Clippers
After a sterling performance in game 1, Luka Doncic put up more big numbers in a game 2 win against the Los Angeles Clippers. With 70 points combined, Luka narrowly passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the 2nd most points through the first two playoff games in NBA history, only behind George Mikan’s 75.
Jaylen’s Spin Cycle Dunk
Hardly will you see a flashy dunk on the fast break, but Jaylen Brown went a little extra on this 360 spin dunk.
Spida’s Hangtime Dime
Donovan Mitchell has always had the extreme hang-time, and utilizes this not for a dunk but on a dime pass. Spida hung for forever on this play, before adjusting mid-air, spinning 180 degrees and finding the open man.
Donovan wore the “Limitless” adidas D.O.N. Issue #2, which isn’t currently available.
Clarkson’s Extra Pose on Slam
Jordan Clarkson adds a little extra on this dunk over Nikola Jokic, hanging extra long on the rim in his Nike Zoom Freak 1s.
Trezz’s Tribute to Grandma
Montrezl Harrell’s grandmother passed while the Clippers first arrived in the bubble and he just recently returned to the team. Trezz paid tribute to “mamie” with a custom message on his Reebok Question 1s.
The “Red Toe” colorway can be found at StockX.
An UNDFTD Debut
Anthony Davis debuted the white and teal UNDFTD Nike Kobe 5 Protro just the other night now the 2nd colorway has graced the bubble courts. This time around Brooklyn Nets Guard Joe Harris laced up the “What The” version, with colors from all 12 teams that passed on Kobe Bryant in the 1996 NBA Draft.

Kawhi’s Fire Kicks
The reigning NBA Finals MVP wore a new colorway of his signature shoe. The red and orange sneakers that Kawhi Leonard laced up, don’t have a nickname but does remind you of the on-fire shooting that the Klaw is known for.
The New Balance THE KAWHI has not released just yet.
Murray’s Shell Toe Love
Jamal Murray went classic and classy with his shell toe sneakers tonight.
