Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell took home the hardware in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday. But all four contestants put on a great show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Mitchell knocked off Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. in the finals, although Nance might've had the dunk of the night.

In his grand finale, Nance threw it down after tossing it off the backboard twice, earning him a perfect 50 from the judges.

Dallas Mavericks rookie Dennis Smith Jr. put up a first-round 50 with a slick between-the-legs dunk.

And Victor Oladipo of the Indiana Pacers brought some star power to the court when he threw one down while wearing a Black Panther mask, which he snagged from the Black Panther himself, actor Chadwick Boseman, who was sitting courtside.
