With a little over 11 minutes remaining in the second quarter and the Spurs leading 28-23, Green attacked the paint from the right wing in transition. Four Spurs defenders were back in position, but none succeeded in shutting down the lane for Green, who snaked between Baynes and Diaw and rose up for his attempt before he hit the protected circle.

Acquired by Memphis from Boston in a trade earlier this year, Green has made highlight dunks a habit in his career. His dunk victims list includes Victor Oladipo and Jason Maxiell, among others.

San Antonio cruised to the double-digit victory thanks to a game-high 25 points and 10 rebounds from Kawhi Leonard. Tony Parker added 17 points and six assists.

Green tallied 19 points and one rebound for the Grizzlies, who lost their third straight game and slipped to the No. 3 spot in the Western Conference playoff picture. Zach Randolph scored a team-high 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.
