Late in the first half of the Hornets’ matchup with the Utah Jazz, Bridges got loose in transition and pulled off one of the most audacious in-game slams we’ve seen in a while. Bypassing a defender with a smooth Euro-step, Bridges still had enough left in his legs to elevate for a windmill dunk.
Bridges participated in the 2019 Slam Dunk Contest during All-Star Weekend as a rookie last season, so his dunking ability is no secret, but the creativity and athleticism to pull this off during a game is still remarkable.
In fact, Bridges’ move was so nice that even other NBA players couldn’t believe what he’d done.
“How did you even think to do this,” Donovan Mitchell asked Bridges on Twitter.
Even if it was only Summer League, you know you’ve pulled off something pretty impressive when all other NBA players can say is “Bruhhhh.”
