Jeff Green again? Who does this guy think he is? Well, certainly not somebody who gets intimidated by the Miami Heat.
In a 109-101 losing effort in South Beach on April 12, Green dunked on Chris “Birdman” Andersen not once, not twice, but three times. And they were serious facials.
In the first quarter, he showed some fancy dribbling and footwork, then sped by Andersen to the right, slamming down the right-hand dunk over the seven-footer's outstretched hand.
A minute and a half later, he drove around a Jason Terry screen, penetrated the lane past two defenders with his textbook aggressiveness and elevated in yet another rough Birdman poster.
Then, in the fourth quarter, Andersen received the worst beating of the three.
Looking like he gave up on trying to block Green, he put his head down and his hands up as Green came right toward him. Jeff slammed it down with such power that he knocked himself to the ground.
Meanwhile, Andersen just kept his head down.
