Phoenix Suns big man Bol Bol threw down a highlight dunk in the second quarter of Game 3 against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, making the most of his first rotation minutes of the postseason.

His dunk tied the game at 42, capping off a short 8-2 spurt, and got the crowd turned up to 12.

There was an opening in the rotation with guard Grayson Allen out for Game 3 due to the ankle sprain he re-injured in Game 2.

Bol had played four and two minutes in Games 1 and 2, respectively. He averaged 5.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in the regular season for the Suns, playing 43 games off the bench.
