NBA MUSEUM OF ART — If you didn't already hear, Lauri Markkanen was back on the court for the Utah Jazz Wednesday night, and he made his impact felt and seen in a new way.
In the third quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers, Markkanen put together a sequence that all but sealed the win to get his team back to .500. He threw down a vicious dunk on Clippers center Ivica Zubac, followed by a 3-pointer to reach 32 points in his return.
The painting used in this specific comparison was "Satan and Death with Sin Intervening" by Swiss painter Henry Fuseli. The comparison drew instant praise, with some putting it among the account's finest work.
"This is the most amazing thing I'll see on Twitter this year," Jazz fan @CJRealHoops1 said.
It wasn't the first time a Jazz highlight got the Art But Make It Sports treatment. Jordan Clarkson was recognized three times before, including the viral shot of the Jazz shooting guard hanging above Lakers LeBron James and Russell Westbrook in November.
