Victor Wembanyama’s dunk vs. Celtics sets record on NBA’s Instagram

The Spurs may be hard to watch, but Wemby is always worth the tune in!

NBA: Boston Celtics at San Antonio Spurs Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports

There wasn’t much to enjoy about the Spurs’ blowout loss to the Boston Celtics on New Year’s Eve, but one play stole a lot of the show, and that was Victor Wembanyama’s high flying dunk from the top of the paint over former Spur Derrick White, who was just trying to get out of the way.

The play quickly went viral, and now the NBA has announced that it has received almost 88.8 million views on their Instagram as of this afternoon, putting it on the verge of becoming their most viewed video ever on that account. While it’s not clear what number would break the record, it’s obviously close enough and still rising to the point they felt the need to post about it.

Fans all over will have another chance to see Wemby again tonight as he faces off against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks on TNT. What new highlights will he have in store this time?
