Jabari Parker continues to come off the bench, but has been thriving more than ever including a season-high 35 points in their loss to the Nuggets on Easter Sunday.
The good news is it appears he’s regaining some of the elite athleticism he may have lost after his second ACL injury, surgery and recovery and he shows it off on plays like this:
Eric Bledsoe does a great job of creating the opportunity for his teammate by stripping Kevin Durant and igniting the fastbreak. Bledsoe then takes a dribble before throwing the ball ahead to the streaking Jason Terry who makes one of the best passes of his career by lofting the ball high into the air and allowing Parker to do the rest. Parker catches the ball on the right side of the rim and tomahawks it down through the hoop for two points (even though it feels like it should be a lot more).
The bench was certainly hyped after this jam and it gave the Bucks early hope they could upset the defending NBA champions on the road, which is exactly what they did.
