Video: Jabari Parker throws down two hammer dunks vs. Hawks
During the second quarter of the Milwaukee Bucks’ 122-117 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on St. Patrick’s Day, Bucks small forward Jabari Parker showed off his athleticism during the second quarter with two dunks that got people to their feet at BMO Harris Bradley Center.
With Milwaukee leading the Hawks 46-45 and 3.24 left in the second quarter, Parker’s first dunk victim was at the expense of Atlanta power forward Mike Muscala.
SOMEBODY CHECK ON MIKE MUSCALA

Next, Parker one-upped himself just a little over two minutes later when he posterized Hawks rookie power forward John Collins with an emphatic one-handed jam.
Hey @JabariParker, why you dunk on him like that!?!

It seems like Parker has definitely gotten the bounce back in his step since he made his return from ACL surgery back on Feb. 2 against the New York Knicks.
“Right now, I know what my shots are going to be. The guys pretty much know,” Parker said after the game. “Well, it hasn’t been easy, but it’s been working.”
In just 21 minutes of action during Saturday night’s win, Jabari Parker had a solid 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field, three rebounds and two assists.
This was a much-needed victory that the Bucks simply could not afford to let slip away, as they had already lost seven of their first 11 contests after the All-Star break.
“That’s what’s important at the end of the day, closing the game out and getting the win,” Bucks head coach Joe Prunty said during his postgame press conference with the media.
Coming up next on their schedule, the Bucks will travel to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a nationally-televised game on Monday night.
