Two tweets pretty much sum up this dunk contest.
The Rudy Gay era is an unmitigated success.— Taco Trey Kerby (@treykerby) February 17, 2013
TV reporter just walked up to Lance Stephenson to asked him about how he did in dunk contest. "I'm not Gerald," he said.— Royce Young (@dailythunder) February 17, 2013
That's it for the evening, folks. Until next time.
Finally, we've got Terrence Ross' over-the-kid Eastbay.
He put on an absolute show tonight. He was the main attraction, and the biggest reason for the night not being a bit disappointing.
And Jeremy Evans' final dunk as he floats in over a terrified Dantay Jones.
Definitely a good dunk, but Terrence Ross was too good tonight.
And here's Terrence Ross' first from the final round.
I was begging for an elbow hang, but what he came out with was stellar.
This is Jeremy Evans' first dunk of the final round.
It was a nice dunk, but I think I would have been more impressed if he would have snagged the sheet off the painting as he was dunking over it.
We didn't have folks naming their dunks this year, but I'm going to go ahead and second this for Terrence Ross' contest-winning dunk.

With 58 percent of the votes, Terrence Ross goes home with Slam Dunk Contest victory, and deservedly so.
I'll have all the dunks from the final round up for you momentarily.

Terrence Ross puts down what would be his second 50 of the final round, were the judges voting.
Ross jumps over a kid, and throws home and Eastbay, dropping down between his legs and slamming it home.
Jeremy Evans gets the next dunk.
Dantay Jones throws the ball up to Evans as he's leaping over him, Evans legs are split as far apart as possible as he slams home a powerful dunk.
Terrence Ross' first dunk is a VInce Carter throwback, so he throws on a Vince Carter jersey.
Terrence Jones throws an alley-oop off the side of the backboard, Ross grabs it, does a 360 windmil in mid-air and slams home with his right arm rotating as fast as a helicopter blade.
Jeremy Evans' first dunk of the finals involves a painting on an easel covered up by a sheet.
Evans goes up, splits his legs, and slams home a windmill. He drops down and reveals a painting of the dunk he did, and then signs the painting.
Finally before the final round starts, we've got Gerald Green's double dunk that he put down after the time expired.
It was a great dunk, it just happened too late.
And here's Jeremy Evans dunking over Mark Eaton.
The best part about it all was the up and under finish that he had.
And here's Terrence Ross' second from the first round.
This one was extra spicy.
Here's the first dunk that Eric Bledsoe had in the first round.
He didn't get his way into the finals, but he put home a nice dunk on his second try. This one was just fine.
Jeremy Evans gets a chance to defend his title after he puts home two balls at once.
The judges give him a 43, which is more than enough to send him to the next round.
Eric Bledsoe's second dunk grabs a perfect 50 as well.
He tosses a pass up to himself, catches it off the bounce, and slams home a hard windmill.
Whoa buddy. Kenneth Faried tosses a pass off the backboard, catches it lefty, goes between his legs and slams it home right-handed.
I definitely didn't think he had that one in him.
He grabs a perfect 50 for that one.
Terrence Ross throws down his on the first try.
He throws it up in the air, catches it off the bounce, and slams home a 360 dunk one-handed as he's falling away from the hoop.
Everybody but Yao Ming gives him a perfect 10.
Here's Kenneth Faried's dunk from the first round.
We've got a minute to spare while the net is replaced.
Gerald Green can't register a dunk either. He was trying to put it through right-handed, grab it lefty as it was going through the hoop, and bring it up and around and dunk it lefty.
He got it to go through after he was out of attempts, but he couldn't get the double-dunk to go down during regulation.
He picked up a 32.
Gerald Green just cut the hoop off the rim.
James White's time runs out, but apparently he gets another shot at it. Every attempt he had looked terrific, but he just couldn't get his windmill dunk from the free throw line just doesn't fall.
They give him a minimum score of 30.
Carmelo Anthony is wearing giant John Lennon glasses. That is all.
