Watch High-Flyer Gerald Green Destroy the Rim Against the Hawks

The Indiana Pacers used their Game 2 matchup against the Atlanta Hawks as a stage to record their official tryout for next year's dunk contest, this time Gerald Green getting in on the act.

I mean come on, you can't have a Pacers game chocked full of dunks without Green taking off from his spring-like legs and completely smashing an opponent.

Not to be out-done by Roy Hibbert (who put an end to Ivan Johnson's respectability and made a three-pointer in the first quarter of the game), Green was determined to find a dunk victim of his own.

Green went about one-upping Hibbert, seeking out Josh Smith in the post and taking a dunk directly into his chest.

This entire first week of the playoffs has been a spectacular showcase in athleticism and showmanship, with dunks piling up, and game-winning shots falling at a much higher rate than normal.

Surprising as it may seem, Atlanta-Indiana has been a fun series despite the Pacers' dominance. 

I know it's going to be hard to pry anybody away from watching the Houston Rockets playing the Oklahoma City Thunder live, but at least set that DVR for these Pacers-Hawks games. They've been entertaining so far.
