Nothing beats a buzzer-beater—except this.

With 0.8 seconds left in a tie game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, Memphis Grizzlies forward Jeff Green caught a game-winning alley-oop dunk off an inbound pass from Courtney Lee.

Mike Conley bumped Green’s man, allowing the 29-year-old to spring free and take flight. He throw down the two-handed dunk as time expired to knock off Phoenix, 95-93.

What a play from head coach Dave Joerger, and what execution from his team.
