Darius Bazley has been more aggressive than ever at the rim, attempting dunks at a high frequency and not being afraid to get contact at the hoop.

On some days, it shines more than others. He had one of the best highlights of his young season in the 99-94 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, when he leapt up for a tip-in dunk and nearly got his head to rim level before slamming it home.

Leading by just two points with six minutes left in the game, Kenrich Williams spotted up for a 3. It bounced off the rim, but Bazley had his sensors locked on the target.

Bazley scored five straight points for the Thunder, helping them take back the lead in the quarter, a lead that would stick.

Overall, he had a very nice game, scoring 11 points and grabbing 11 rebounds for his first double-double of the season. He recorded four assists, a season-high.

Bazley was plus-12 on the night in the Thunder come-from-behind victory, their second in the last two games.

Quite a few plays from this game stand out as special, and Bazley showing off his hops and his apparent magnet to the ball is among those.
