The 6-foot-4, 212-pound guard took flight over the 7-foot, 275-pound center in the first quarter of the Timberwolves' 111-81 loss to the Blazers on Sunday at Moda Center in Portland. The Blazers led 14-8 at the time, before Okogie received a pass in transition.
Okogie barreled into the paint by dribbling past 3-point line ahead of all five Blazers defenders. He ducked into the lane and went airborne, before Nurkic also decided to elevate. The Blazers big man met Okogie on the right side of the rim, where the guard had brought the ball back in his right hand and was coming forward for a monster flush.
But the 7-footer was no match for the Okogie hammer, which went over his outstretched arm and through the rim. Okogie jumped excitedly in front of the Timberwolves' bench after the flush.
The Timberwolves guard finished the game was just six points, three rebounds and an assist. Nurkic led the Blazers with 19 points and 12 rebounds in the win.
The Blazers host the Milwaukee Bucks at 10 p.m. on Tuesday at Moda Center. Minnesota travels for a matchup against the Clippers at 10:30 p.m. on Monday at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
