Derrick Jones Jr. would have scored a 50 with this dunk from pregame warmups
Derrick Jones Jr. earned two perfect scores in the 2017 NBA Dunk Contest, but he surely would have had a third had he used this dunk from pregame warmups on Sunday.

Jones used in-between-the-legs variations for some of his dunks in New Orleans, but this variety is with a 360-degree spin mixed in, something he did not go for in the competition.
In fact, taking warmups footage from earlier in the year, we can see that Jones can perform the same dunk going the same way, but with his right hand instead.

If Jones gets another chance to compete, we could see this when the bright lights are on at All-Star Weekend.
