Malik Monk is having his best season as an NBA player yet. He is scoring at a high level, dishing out a career-high 5.2 assists per game, competing for the Sixth Man of the Year award, and dunking on people left and right. 

At 6’3”, Monk is not one of the tallest players in the league but he can get up there. 59 games into the regular season, the 26-year-old has already shown off several highlight dunks. 

So, let’s look at his top five dunks so far this season. 

5. The one-handed slam against Detroit

The Kings’ February 8th game against the Detroit Pistons was not a good one. Detroit has won nine games all season long. The Kings should not lose to them but feel 133-120 at Golden 1 Center. 

Malik Monk owns one of the game’s better moments for the Kings, however, with this highlight dunk. 

The Kings are at their best when they make defensive plays and get a chance to run and this dunk is proof. It all started with a steal by De’Aaron Fox, who ranks third in the league in total steals this season. The lob by Davion Mitchell set Monk up perfectly for the one-handed slam that brought fans at Golden 1 Center to their feet. 

During the entire sequence, the ball only touched the floor four times. It was beautiful basketball but unfortunately didn't come with a win.
