Zach LaVine is one of the NBA's best dunkers, we all know that. His recent performances in the Slam Dunk Contest - where he is currently back-to-back champion - have been incredible, and the recent video posted by Andrew Wiggins of his 360 slam from the free throw line shows we are in for a treat at All-Star 2017.

However, something new happened last night during the Minnesota Timberwolves' win over the Phoenix Suns, and it could be the start of something special for the youngster.

As part of his 13-point performance in the T-Wolves' 98-85 win, LaVine produced the first posterizing dunk - we think - of his career.

There have been numerous times when the dunking master has threatened to do this, but it seems Alex Len is his first real victim. He skipped past Eric Bledsoe and used Len as a ladder as he climbed to the hoop and threw down the one-handed dunk with ferocity.

LaVine has more flashy dunks than anyone we've ever seen in the NBA, but if he can add a composure to finish under pressure then it will really take his game to a new level, and produce more scintillating moments like the one from last night's victory.

We're all waiting for victim number two.
