Jeff Green reminded the world why Memphis traded for him by dunking on and staring down Victor Oladipo during the Grizzlies' 106-96 road victory on Friday.

Memphis acquired Green with the goal of infusing some athleticism into its frontcourt, and that's exactly what the combo forward delivered on this dunk. With a little less than eight minutes remaining and Orlando leading 59-58, Green entered the ball to Zach Randolph and then ran by him to receive a handoff.

Green turned the corner on the right baseline and crushed home a right-handed dunk over Oladipo, who came across the paint to help. After completing the slam, Green then loomed over Oladipo for a moment as he stared down his poster victim. 

The Grizzlies scored the double-digit victory by having all five starters in double figures. Green posted a team-high 21 points and five rebounds coming off the bench for coach Dave Joerger.

Elfrid Payton led the Magic with a game-high 22 points and 12 assists. Nikola Vucevic chipped in 18 points and nine rebounds.
