Brittney Griner Throws Down A Nice Breakaway Dunk

Brittney Griner slammed home the first dunk in the history of the WNBA playoffs during last night's rout of the L.A. Sparks.

Late in the third quarter, Griner picked a steal at the top three-point line and broke for the other end, finishing the play with an impressive dunk. Griner really is the only woman in the WNBA who can pull off a dunk like this—on the run, two hands on the rim, not needing to stop to gather herself—and it's cool to see her get a chance to flex her abilities in the playoffs. She also went 9-of-9 from the field last night and scored 21 points.
