It’s quite incredible to see how Gerald Green has changed since coming back from his European exile. A much better player than before, but still an incredibly athletic and exciting dunk artist, pulling off a mean posterizing slam on Jordan Hill as the Phoenix Suns beat the Los Angeles Lakers.
Cutting from the weak side, Green was guarded by Wayne Ellington outside the key. The Lakers made a bad switch which left Jordan Hill in a bad position to help out on Green, whose elevation made the height difference between the two players irrelevant, pulling off a small clutch before finishing on Hill’s head.
Green scored a team-high 26 points as the Suns came away with the 112-106 win in Los Angeles, with a Lakers team they should have put away a lot earlier and sooner.
Green had his best season, playing for the Suns last year, averaging 15.8 points per game. He made the most of the Eric Bledsoe injury. This season he’s back on the bench but doing very well in his new role, scoring 14 a night in only 23.8 minutes per game.
