Watching Memphis Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant take flight for big dunks was one of the things we missed the most when the NBA season was suspended. Now that the season is back again, so are his jaw-dropping dunks.

Check out what Morant did Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers. After a steal led to a fast break, Morant streaked down the court and was the beneficiary of a sweet alley-oop pass. He took to the skies to finish this one off in grand style.

Just a beautiful sight to behold. Morant is a special young player. He makes it look so easy, too.
