Seth Curry appeared to have recorded his first NBA dunk in the second quarter of the Blazers’ loss to the Raptors.

The Trail Blazers suffered their first loss of their current seven-game road trip on Friday. The competitive affair against the Raptors featured plenty of highlight-worthy moments—including Seth Curry’s first NBA dunk.

With roughly eight minutes remaining in the second quarter, Curry found open space on a breakaway. Instead of going for a traditional layup, the former Duke guard decided to go for the glory.

The Raptors then took a timeout, and a grinning Curry headed towards the bench. Even as he approached the sideline, he informed NBC Sports Northwest’s Jamie Hudson that he wasn’t sure if it would be ruled as a dunk.

Curry trotted to the Blazers bench after a Toronto timeout smiling ear to ear. But was it a “I just dunked for the first time,” smile? Or a “Coach Stotts is going to give me a hard time for not dunking again,” smile...?

Shortly after the play, Stephen Curry placed his vote in the dunk column for his brother.

Judging by the video above, do you think Curry’s basket qualifies as dunk?
