Nikola Vucevic Just Had One of the Best Poster Dunks of the Season!

During double OT in a one-possession game, Nikola Vucevic had one of the best moments of his Bulls career.

The big man grabbed the bounce pass from Zach LaVine at the top of the key before he broke for the rim. As Minnesota’s Jaylen Nowell slid over to contest, Vucevic rose to the basket and hammered home arguably the most ferocious dunk of the Bulls’ season.

The United Center went absolutely ballistic. Check it out:

I know, I didn’t know Vucevic had those bunnies in him either!

The Bulls went on to win 139-131 to move back into sole possession of 10th place in the Eastern Conference. Vucevic finished the night with 21 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals. Let’s hope he has a similar performance – and dunk – in him less than 24 hours from now when the Bulls face off against the Miami Heat.
