MARCUS SMART, TEAM HUSTLE CHALLENGE REWARD
Marcus Smart has won the NBA Hustle Award in three of the past five seasons, so it was no surprise to see him hit the deck for the betterment of the Boston Celtics.
Smart got a jumpstart on his 2023 award when he narrowly saved a loose ball from careening out of bounds to turn it into a steal, assist and two points all in one sequence. The 2022 Defensive Player of the Year straddled the sideline and flung a heads-up pass to an all-alone Jayson Tatum, who rewarded Smart’s hustle with a one-handed fastbreak throwdown. Smart posted two points, three rebounds, 11 assists and two steals as his squad handed the Detroit Pistons a 128-112 defeat on November 9, 2022.
ALEX CARUSO, TEAM HUSTLE
Alex Caruso has long been a fan favorite during his six professional seasons, and it’s easy to see why.
The undrafted Chicago Bulls guard has carved out an NBA niche due to his selfless style of play and turned defense into instant offense against the New York Knicks. Caruso first caused a steal and raced ahead in transition just in time to haul in an outlet pass and loft an alley-oop off the backboard to a trailing Zach LaVine, who finished the highlight-reel sequence with a slam. An NBA All-Defensive First Team selection for the first time in 2022-23, Caruso mixed in four points, two rebounds, five assists and three steals on December 14, 2022.
BOL BOL, TEAM HUSTLE
Bol Bol’s short memory and insane wingspan allowed him to one-up Tobias Harris.
After Harris’ strong defense caused Bol to misfire and tumble to the floor on the offensive end, the Orlando Magic center quickly course corrected as he raced the entire length of the floor and flew into the frame on defense to turn a seemingly open Harris 3-pointer into a highlight-reel rejection. Bol used every bit of his 7-foot-2 frame to record one of his game-high four blocks while mixing in 14 points, eight rebounds and two assists against the Philadelphia 76ers on November 25, 2022.
MARKELLE FULTZ, TEAM HUSTLE
If at first you don’t succeed, try again.
Markelle Fultz picked off a pass against the Portland Trail Blazers and when he failed to convert a reverse layup on the counterattack, the first pick in the 2017 NBA Draft picked ambushed a ball carrier from behind and instantly fired a behind-the-back dish to Paolo Banchero for an emphatic throwdown. Fultz tallied 15 points, five rebounds, eight assists and four steals for the Orlando Magic on March 5, 2023.
ISAIAH LIVERS, TEAM HUSTLE
Persistence paid off for Isaiah Livers.
The second-year Detroit Pistons guard didn’t let a little contact prevent him from making a play following a defensive rebound as he hit the floor grappling for possession with Isaiah Roby of the San Antonio Spurs. With some assistance from teammate Jaden Ivey, Livers emerged from the pile with the ball and finished the transition counterattack with a wide-open 3-pointer. Livers tallied 11 points, 10 rebounds and two steals while converting 3 of his 6 attempts from downtown as his tenacity helped the Pistons secure a hard-fought 138-131 double overtime victory on February 10, 2023.
BEN SIMMONS, TEAM HUSTLE
Ben Simmons had a little extra pep in his step upon his return to Philadelphia.
A three-time All-Star with the Philadelphia 76ers, Simmons returned to the City of Brotherly Love for the first time as a visiting player and wasted little time impacting the game with his gritty style of play. Simmons hounded De’Anthony Melton after a defensive switch and dislodged the ball before diving on the floor and punching it up ahead to an in-transition Kevin Durant, who finished the sequence with a fastbreak slam. Simmons stuffed the stat sheet to the tune of 11 points, seven rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and three blocks for the Brooklyn Nets on November 22, 2022.
JARRED VANDERBILT, TEAM HUSTLE
It did not take Jarred Vanderbilt very long to make a strong impression with his new team.
In his fifth game with the Los Angeles Lakers after being acquired in a trade, Vanderbilt stepped into a passing lane between Tim Hardaway Jr. and Luka Dončić to earn a steal and then saved the ball from sailing out of bounds by flipping an overhead pass with his back turned to an in-transition Troy Brown Jr. for a fastbreak layup. Vanderbilt connected on 6 of his 8 field goals for 15 points to go with 17 rebounds and four steals as the Lakers outlasted the Dallas Mavericks 111-108 on February 26, 2023.
JOSH OKOGIE, TEAM HUSTLE
Josh Okogie made sure to remind the Houston Rockets that he’s got tremendous hops on both ends of the court.
The Phoenix Suns reserve forward soared to tremendous heights to rip a Jalen Green shot from midair and then followed the impressive rejection by rumbling the other way to throw down a highlight-reel transition slam. The fifth-year pro made the most of his 20 minutes off the bench, posting 10 points, six rebounds, three assists and two blocks on December 13, 2022.
KELLY OLYNYK, TEAM HUSTLE
A little luck went a long way for Kelly Olynyk.
The veteran Utah Jazz forward deflected a Jalen Brunson pass on defense and raced after his reward, preventing the ball from going out of bounds with a desperation behind-the-back save attempt. The ball fortuitously landed in the hands of Jordan Clarkson, who whipped a pass to an all-alone Olynyk to finish the frenetic sequence with a powerful reverse jam. Olynyk posted team-highs of 27 points and 11 rebounds against the New York Knicks on November 15, 2022.
LEBRON JAMES, TEAM SHOW CHALLENGE REWARD
On a night he was on fire from downtown, LeBron James still blocked off some time to dazzle the crowd with one of his patented gravity-defying throwdowns.
A few months before the 19-time All-Star became the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, James was flying high through the Texas air as he came up with a steal on the defensive end and embarked on a 3-on-1 fast break. The King tossed an alley-oop to Russell Westbrook, who instead of landing the dunk himself lofted the ball in midair back to James for a monster one-handed slam. James scored a game-high 39 points while connecting on 7 of 12 3-pointers to go with 11 rebounds and three assists in a 143-138 Los Angeles Lakers win over the San Antonio Spurs on November 26, 2022.
ZACH LAVINE, TEAM SHOW
As a two-time Slam Dunk Contest champion, Zach LaVine knows a thing or two about showmanship.
The two-time All-Star got a head start on offense following a Denver Nuggets miss, then hauled in an outlet pass and hammered home a full-extension tomahawk jam. The scintillating slam was part of a huge night for LaVine as he posted a game-high 29 points on 12 of 18 shooting while also mixing in five rebounds, four assists and two steals. LaVine helped hand Denver a rare home loss in the dominant 117-96 Chicago Bulls victory on March 8, 2023.
DE’AARON FOX, TEAM SHOW
De’Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings reached plenty of peak altitudes during a resurgent 2022-23 season.
The first-time All-Star took advantage of Josh Giddey’s shaky ball security as he picked the Oklahoma City Thunder guard’s pocket and traversed the court all alone en route to a spectacular windmill finish. Fox erupted for a game-high 33 points on 11 for 19 from the field while chipping in three rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Sacramento’s 124-115 road victory on February 26, 2023.
SCOTTIE BARNES, TEAM SHOW
Scottie Barnes couldn’t believe he was so wide open, so he treated the City of Brotherly Love to an unbelievable finish.
The 2022 Rookie of the Year intercepted a bad De’Anthony Melton pass and had nothing but space between himself and the basket before unleashing an awe-inspiring 360-degree throwdown. The highlight-reel dunk was part of a huge game for the talented Toronto Raptors forward, who converted 13 of his 19 shots for a game-high 29 points to pair with nine rebounds, eight assists and four steals against the Philadelphia 76ers on March 31, 2023.
ZION WILLIAMSON, TEAM SHOW
Get Zion Williamson in open space and wait for the inevitable magic to blow your mind.
The two-time New Orleans Pelicans All-Star got an early jump on his 2022-23 highlight reel when Jose Alvarado came away with a steal and spotted Williamson all by himself in transition. Williamson took care of the rest as he threw down a show-stopping fastbreak windmill slam against the Golden State Warriors for two of his 16 points. Williamson shot 7 for 11 and added three rebounds in his squad’s 114-105 triumph on November 4, 2022.
JALEN GREEN, TEAM SHOW
Jalen Green’s second NBA season contained plenty of highs — literally.
The explosive Houston Rockets guard brought the house down against the San Antonio Spurs after Alperen Şengün came up with a steal on the defensive end and lofted a pass up ahead to an all-alone Green, who finished with a bang when he landed a breathtaking windmill slam. One of seven Rockets players to post double-digit points, the 2022 All-Rookie First Team selection chipped in 12 points and four rebounds as his squad claimed a 122-110 win on March 4, 2023.
KAI JONES, TEAM SHOW (TOP SHOT DEBUT)
Kai Jones was off and running with only one thing on his mind — do something truly dazzling.
The Charlotte Hornets reserve forward was only on the court for eight minutes, yet he ensured the home Washington Wizards crowd would still be talking about him long after the game ended. The second-year pro picked off a bad Kristaps Porziņģis pass with some forward momentum and was off to the races, zipping past the lone defender in his path before rotating his body in midair to land a magnificent two-handed reverse windmill slam. The unforgettable dunk was one of two buckets for Jones, who finished with four points, a rebound and an assist on November 20, 2022.
UDONIS HASLEM, TEAM SHOW
Udonis Haslem emptied the tank in his regular-season finale.
The 42-year-old longtime Miami Heat big man announced his intentions to retire after 20 seasons with the same franchise — but not before putting on one final unforgettable performance. When the Heat forced a turnover against the Orlando Magic, Haslem again resembled the player who helped his squad win three titles when he threw down a glorious alley-oop off a feed from Duncan Robinson. Haslem shot 9 for 17 from the field for 24 points, becoming the first 42-year-old to ever score at least 24 points in a game. It was his highest-scoring game since 2009 and the third-highest output of his career, all in a feel-good 123-110 win on April 9, 2023.
COLE ANTHONY, TEAM SHOW
Cole Anthony emerged from the scrum with both the basketball and lofty flight plans.
Following a turnover, the third-year Orlando Magic guard rewarded his teammates’ defensive hustle with a memorable finish as he pushed the tempo in the open floor before dropping a powerful windmill throwdown on the Chicago Bulls. Anthony made his presence known all night off the bench, shooting 9 for 15 for 21 points to go with six rebounds and six assists on January 28, 2023.
