Video: Grizzlies' Tayshaun Prince dunks on Thunder's Reggie Jackson, Serge Ibaka

Grizzlies forward Tayshaun Prince threw down a monster dunk over Reggie Jackson and Serge Ibaka of the Thunder during the third quarter of an 88-84 win in Game 5 on Wednesday night.

With a little more than seven minutes remaining in the third quarter and Memphis leading 58-46, Grizzlies guard Mike Conley pushed the ball in transition, shoveling the ball to a trailing Prince who then attacked the paint at full speed. Picking up his dribble around the free-throw line, Prince cruised between Thabo Sefolosha and Jackson and then finished a lefty slam over Ibaka, the Thunder's shot-blocking specialist. Wam. Bam. Who knew Prince, 33, could still sky like that?

Prince finished with eight points (on three-for-13 shooting) and six rebounds in 31 minutes. Zach Randolph led the way for the Grizzlies with 28 points and 14 rebounds, both game-highs. The Thunder got a team-high 21 points from Kevin Durant in a losing effort.

Memphis, the West's No. 5 seed, eliminated the Thunder, the No. 1 seed, from the playoffs with a 4-1 victory in their Western Conference semifinals series. They will advance to face either San Antonio or Golden State in the Western Conference finals.
