Shaun Livingston of the Brooklyn Nets can still finish alley-oops with the best of them.

Here, he skies high to finish a twisting, rim-hanging dunk with authority at the Barclays Center on Monday night.

Livingston suffered a horrific injury in 2007 while with the Los Angeles Clippers. Landing after a missed layup, his knee buckled, damaging all the ligaments and the joint itself.

After numerous surgeries, a lengthy rehab process and abbreviated stints around the league, Livingston is having a resurgent season with the Nets, averaging 7.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists through 45 games this season.
