With just under 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter, Jeremy Lin went off of a high screen and split three Hornets defenders.
Upon crossing the free-throw line, Lin looked left, dished right and found Smith on the interior. Smith proceeded to rise up.
Hornets center Jason Smith did the same.
You can see who won that battle of the Smiths.
Jason Friedman of Rockets.com was quick to acknowledge the play, citing the fact that it had been some time since Smith made a highlight-reel appearance. With his explosive leap and powerful finishing, that's rather shocking.
All hail his return.
Been a few games since we've had a Greg Smith highlight. Well, he just posterized Jason Smith following gorgeous no-look pass from J-Lin.— Jason Friedman (@JasonCFriedman) January 3, 2013

It appears as if they're a threat for a "Wow!" moment every time out, as well.
