A basketball is bouncy. Players dribble it down the court. They pass to each other. They shoot the ball at the net. Points are given if they score.

Kawhi Leonard dunks the ball! The dunk is one of the most exciting plays in basketball. One player jumps high and slams the ball down through the hoop. Like any regular shot, a dunk is only worth two points. But a big dunk can get fans excited. Fans love to watch great players do amazing things.
