Throughout his breakout season with the Golden State Warriors, Gary Payton II has provided a flurry of highlights with monster dunks, including multiple poster-worthy slams.

On Thursday night at Chase Center, he added to his catalog against the Indiana Pacers.

During the fourth quarter, Payton II caused the home crowd to rise to their feet after an emphatic one-handed poster dunk over Pacers big Goga Bitadze.

Via @warriors on Twitter:

Following the dunk, Payton II gave Bitadze a stare and a head scratch that caused a reaction from the 22-year-old center. Bitadze proceeded to slightly headbutt Payton II. After getting dunked on, Bitadze was hit with an ejection for his nudge at Payton II.

Payton II finished the contest with six points on 3-of-5 shooting from the field with five boards and two steals in 17 minutes.

Despite the poster dunk, the Pacers got the final word. Behind rookie Chris Duarte, the Pacers served the Warriors to an upset loss in overtime, 121-117.

Payton II and the Warriors will be back on the floor on Friday night against the Houston Rockets at 7 p.m. for the second leg of a back-to-back at Chase Center.
