Kai Sotto scored his first official NBL Australia regular season field goal in style, slamming it home during the second quarter of the Adelaide 36ers’ home game against Melbourne United.
The 7-foot-3 Filipino center got an entry pass underneath and quickly attempted a lay-in; he got foiled but got his own miss before patiently timing a one-hand throwdown over the Melbourne frontcourt defense.
The dunk also jumpstarted a 9-0 run for the home side which enabled them to cut the halftime deficit to only 44-51.
Sotto had two points, two rebounds, one steal, and one block in over six minutes of play in the first half, and was a plus-7.
