Watch Danuel House throw down ridiculous off the backboard alley-oop to himself

Warriors fans got a treat Sunday night when Suns player Danuel House Jr. threw down an epic off the backboard alley oop to himself.

The Phoenix Suns have had a down season, to say the least, but Danuel House offered a glimpse of brightness for Suns fans in the teams 117-107 loss to the Warriors on Saturday. After picking up his dribble, House used a nifty up-and-under to fool create space before throwing it off the glass for an impressive alley-oop to himself. 

That's a normal play for me. Me and my dad did a lot of trick stuff growing up. I get all the trick stuff from my dad because he watched (Michael) Jordan. He used to teach me. I saw a time to execute it and it turned out to be the right play.

The former Texas A&M standout appeared to be letting out some anger after being stuck in the G-League for a majority of the season. House has seen limited action with the Suns this season after being picked up in free agency coming out of college by the Washington Wizards. The Suns are looking like the favorite to receive the first overall pick in June's NBA draft which could help provide a much-needed boost of talent.
