The rookie Jalen Suggs, who plays the Shooting Guard, was the 5th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, selected by the Orlando Magic. He has been one of the brightest spots for the Magic roster. However, the Magic missed him for the entire December and half of January as Suggs was out to a thumb fracture.

The rookie from Gonzaga college is averaging 12.8 points per game in 27.7 minutes per game. Since his return, he is averaging 14.8 points per game and has scored 10+ in each game. His field goal percentage is a much improved 47% (from the previous 30-35%) for the same duration. Evading the defenders is one of his biggest strengths. According to the Sports Spectrum, 10 of his 26 drives were blow-bys past defenders and he was able to finish at the rim more often than not.

Jalen Suggs with the highlight of the game

The Orlando Magic had already sealed the game when the Bulls faced this atrocity. The Magic were leading 103-89 with little over five minutes remaining in the game. Suggs had the ball when he suddenly decided to go off the screen and charged towards the rim for a monstrous dunk. He partly caught DeMar DeRozan in the process, seemingly elbowed him. His momentum led him to the stands where he was hyped up and so were the rest of the fans. The bench had some meme-worthy reactions too to this dunk by Suggs.

Twitter had mixed reactions that mostly were about Suggs’ athleticism. Some fans demanded that the play be called an offensive foul for elbowing DeRozan while other fans suggested Suggs come play for the NFL.
