Mac McClung, the newly signed player for the Philadelphia 76ers, won the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk Contest with an impressive performance in Salt Lake City on Saturday.

The crowd was left amazed as McClung scored a perfect 50 for three of his four dunks, leading him to a victory score of 100-99 against Trey Murphy III of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Jericho Sims of the New York Knicks and Kenyon Martin Jr. of the Houston Rockets were eliminated in the first round of the competition.

McClung's first dunk received a perfect score, where he hurdled two people to grab the ball, tapped it off the glass, and finished with a two-handed slam.

He scored a 49.8 for his second dunk, a two-handed 360, which gave him the highest combined first-round score.

McClung, a former All-American high school dunk contest winner, has played in just two NBA games.

Murphy scored a 49.2 on his final dunk, but McClung sealed the victory with another perfect dunk.
