Thunder guard Reggie Jackson threw down a poster dunk over Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire during Oklahoma City's 123-94 blowout victory at Madison Square Garden on Christmas Day.

With a little less than eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and the Thunder leading by 20, Jackson found himself with a clear path to the basket from the left wing after Tyson Chandler tripped unexpectedly to the court. Jackson took one hard dribble towards the paint before gathering to throw down a one-handed slam over Stoudemire, who flew by from the weakside in hopes of blocking the shot. The 6-foot-3 Jackson packed some punch into the slam, and he drew an appreciative reaction from the crowd even though he was on the road.
