Grayson Allen is showing he’s got some ups.
The Phoenix Suns guard walked the ball up court against 20-year-old guard Cason Wallace of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
He crossed the timeline dribbling with his left and got a step on Wallace before he accelerated at the 3-point line. At that point, he elevated, switched hands and dunked over the Kentucky product.

Both teams hit four 3-pointers at the half.
