#NBATopShotThis: Morant's windmill alley-oop finish

Ja Morant had been taking it easy after his ankle injury early in the season but of late, the reigning Rookie of the Year is back at it.

Over the past month or so, his big-number games are back and more importantly, the spring in his step seems to be back which has resulted in multiple above-the-rim highlight plays.

On Friday night against the Orlando Magic, it wasn't enough for Morant to glide in the air and hammer it home. He windmilled it.

In the low-scoring 92-75 victory, Morant struggled offensively but dished out six assists and recorded five rebounds to go with eight points.

Morant already has 13 different moments on the Top Shot marketplace ranging from $10 USD to as much as $240,000 (USD), with no doubt that he'll add even more this season.
