He Networks were shot down by 76ers at home on Sunday, losing 121–99. However, Brooklyn had a standout moment during the game. Whether captured in a photograph (perhaps for a poster) or recorded on video, a basket from the first quarter of Lonnie Walker It was a beautiful sight.
Brooklyn’s Trendon Watford blocked a Philadelphia shot Joel Embiid and the ball passed to Walker, who dribbled down the left side of the court. He then turned to the center and accelerated toward the line before tearing through all five Sixers defenders for a ferocious dunk.
The Nets’ social media team posted several videos of Walker’s dunk over three Philadelphia players, including a clip from the broadcast and a slow-motion look at the play.
However, an overhead shot of the play made Walker’s already spectacular jump to the hoop look like a work of art. Have a look:

The Nets guard rose through the air, cutting between De’Anthony Melton and Robert Covington with a powerful step. Patrick Beverly, House Daniel Jr.and Embiid fell behind as Walker threw the ball through the rim.
Walker led the Nets with 26 points in a losing effort, but these two points were particularly impressive, especially filmed from an overhead angle in slow motion. This could be a play that NBA fans and Walker himself watch countless times because it looks so cool.
