On Saturday, Ja Morant's full extension poster against Indiana got a lot of attention from all over the NBA.
Once Ja Morant's amazing, above-the-box chasedown block on Bennedict Mathurin was ruled legal, it gave the NBA night an all-time highlight.
Then there was the dunk.
Ja saw daylight. Jalen Smith got on the stage to compete. Ja turned around. and again. and again.
When the bomb went off, NBA Twitter went crazy. Here are some of the responses:
