The Boston Celtics are taking on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday afternoon in Minnesota. The Celtics led the Timberwolves at halftime by a score of 66-47.

However, during the second quarter, D'Angelo Russell had a massive dunk on Celtics' center Luke Kornet.

After being freed up from the pick and roll action between Russell and forward Karl-Anthony Towns, Russell went very hard to the basket and dunked the ball on Kornet to finish the posterizing play.

The highlight can be seen in a video post embedded below from Bleacher Report NBA.

Russell has eight points and four assists at halftime, while Anthony-Towns has 18 points and ten rebounds.

Over on the Celtics side, Jayson Tatum had a team-high 14-points at halftime.
