We know Jordan Bell can throw it down, but the Golden State Warriors rookie took it to new heights on Monday night against the Dallas Mavericks.
With the game already in hand as the Warriors led the Mavericks 119-94 with less than three minutes to go, Bell blocked a shot, which was eventually tipped back to him up court. With a clear path to the hoop, Bell could've done a regular, simple dunk to finish the play. But he wanted the style points, too.
A picture (or video, in this case), is worth 1,000 words, so I’ll let Bell’s athletic ability do the talking from here:

The dunk was great, but what was equally as entertaining was the bench’s reaction, especially from Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, who were in awe of what they just saw.
The Warriors would go on to defeat the Mavericks 133-103, improving to 2-2 on the year.
