For historical context, Whiteside’s blocked shots average would be the highest in the NBA since Alonzo Mourning averaged 3.91 for the Heat in 1998-99, when a lockout shortened the season to 50 games. Over a full 82-game season, Whiteside’s average would be the highest since Dikembe Mutombo swatted away 4.49 per game in 1995-96. In the 42 seasons since the NBA first started tracking blocks as a statistic, the league leader has averaged at least 4.0 blocks per game on 13 occasions. But all 13 happened over the first 23 seasons (1973-1996). Mark Eaton did it three times, and Dikembe Mutombo, Hakeem Olajuwon and Manute Bol achieved it twice apiece.

The highlights of LaVine’s final round included a windmill jam from the free-throw line, a through-the-legs dunk from just below the free-throw line and a through-the-legs reverse bucket starting from under the baseline. LaVine earned 50-point scores for each dunk in the final as judges Shaquille O’Neal, Tracy McGrady, Magic Johnson, Dikembe Mutombo and George Gervin were ecstatic after each finish. Gordon did close to the same when he put away a pair of incredible dunks with the help of the Magic mascot (one of which saw him put the ball under both legs), but his final dunk apparently wasn’t up to snuff. The judges gave him a 47-point score to set LaVine up for the win. “I don’t know what we just did, but that was creative,” LaVine said after the victory.
