Rudy Gobert has set a record for the most dunks in an NBA season with 270. Gobert is averaging 3.68 dunks per game.
The previous record was 269 by Dwight Howard.
”It’s a mix of many things, but I think my teammates have done a great job of finding me,” Gobert said when asked Monday about his spike in dunks. “Compared to last year … I have way more lobs, way more high passes this year, and it puts me in a great position to finish. It’s a great offensive play. It’s hard to guard, it puts a lot of pressure on the defense."
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 262 dunks entering Monday.
Dunks first start being recorded in 2000.
