J. Cole tried to get a dunk off as well but ultimately missed. The 7-foot-1 O'Neal stood in Diallo's path to the basket, causing Diallo to leap spread-eagle over O'Neal for the dunk. Hield was second with 26 points, and Harris finished with 25 to grab the last spot in the finals.

Players didn't practice the course, and Tatum said the chest pass was the hardest part.

Curry was second with 24 and the Sacramento Kings' Buddy Hield rounded out the top three with 19 points.

Oklahoma City's Hamidou Diallo is the NBA's slam dunk champion.

Diallo and Smith advanced on those dunks over Bridges and Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins (a former Wake Forest star).
