This is the first slam dunk in WNBA playoffs history.

The Phoenix Mercury center stole the ball from a bad pass from Nneka Ogwumike and made a two-handed breakaway dunk to get the Merc up 67-42 in the middle of the third quarter. Video is above from the WNBA's YouTube channel. Color analyst Rebecca Lobo was CLEARLY excited at the end of that video clip.

This dunk wasn't about pleasing the crowd, even if the game is a blowout. It is a sign of Griner saying "I MUST BREAK YOU!"
