Memphis Grizzlies forward James Johnson has only played five games this year, and he didn't waste much time in winning his first Dunk of the Night award.

Dwight Howard couldn't quite get in the way of Johnson, who blew through the lane and threw down a monster jam. But it was Howard and the Rockets who came away with the 100-92 win.
