Jayson Tatum Saves Duke Teammate's Shot with Amazing Slam vs. Notre Dame

There's a reason Duke Blue Devils forward Jayson Tatum is a projected top-five NBA draft pick, and he demonstrated it Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

During the first half of Duke's faceoff with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the ACC tournament title game, Tatum landed a highlight-reel-worthy dunk. 

As teammate Luke Kennard hoisted an unsuccessful three-point attempt, Tatum swooped in and saved it, bringing the ball down for the slam and the crowd up to its feet. 

He's the projected No. 4 pick in the upcoming NBA draft, per B/R's Jonathan Wasserman...and with plays like these, it's easy to see why.
