NBA All-Star Dunk Contest

  • Pat Connaughton +500
  • Dwight Howard +600

Final Round

  1. Derrick Jones Jr.
  2. Aaron Gordon

The final round between Gordon and Jones Jr. was arguably one of the best of all time. Iconic dunks led to a dunk-off, and as close of a finish as you could imagine.

Derrick Jones Jr. flew over two people, between the legs, and finished with authority.

Gordon answered with a ridiculous dunk of his own, but ultimately fell short again in the eyes of the judges.

Champion: Derrick Jones Jr. 🔥
