Jeff Green destroyed Al Jefferson with a monstrous, soul-crushing dunk on Wednesday night in Boston.
The Boston Celtics forward took a pass in the corner and drove to the hole where he elevated from the middle of the paint and just slammed one down on the Jazz big man. Green then stared down Jefferson for good measure, receiving a technical foul for taunting.
Not only did his teammates not seem to mind, they were actually happy about it. Kevin Garnett could be seen saying to him, “That’s what I’m talking about,” while others gave him similar praise.
Green missed last season after undergoing heart surgery, and he was struggling to fit into the team this year. A powerful, statement dunk like this is exactly the sort of play he needed to get going.
Meanwhile, Jefferson, who was once traded from Boston to Minnesota in the Kevin Garnett deal, still has not beaten his former team. The C’s won 98-93 while Green scored a season-high 16 points.

Jeff Green is back this season after missing all of last year with a heart condition. This wasn't a bad way to get his name back out there. Green had a huge slam dunk over Al Jefferson in the fourth quarter of the Celtics win over the Jazz tonight that turned a few eyes. Check out the dunk below and hopefully Mr. Green will have more to come.

Jefferson tried to get out of the way towards the end, but it was just too late at that point. I don’t see why Jeff Green got a technical foul on that play, I didn’t see any taunting that was out of the ordinary.Green missed all of last year with serious medical issues, but has done a good job coming off the bench this year for the Celtics.
BOSTON — Anyone who claims that a dunk is only worth two points has never been in the building when a player delivered a true facial to a helpless defender.
Jeff Green produced just such a highlight-reel dunk on Wednesday, when the reserve forward bulled into the lane, elevated over Al Jefferson and slammed the ball home over the reeling Utah Jazz center. The TD Garden crowd erupted...
A great win for the Celtics. Obviously, Jazz fans weren't very pleased. Mostly their hate was directed at their own players - specifically one Mo Williams. Williams started going into hero mode at the end of the game, only problem is he's not LeBron James or Kobe Bryant. Or like, Paul Pierce even. That plan didn't turn out so well for Utah.

He got to the line more than anyone besides Paul Pierce...
CSNNE's Sherrod Blakely posted a piece on Al Jefferson's return to Boston after the Celtics-Jazz game on Wednesday night. While most of the discussion about Big Al related to Jeff Green's monster dunk on him, Jefferson scored 13 points and grabbed 14 rebounds against the Celtics, and Doc Rivers highly touted his former player:
"He just keeps getting better and...
Kevin Garnett said Celtics Jeff Green needed to find his inner a$$hole and get mean. Wednesday night Jeff showed he has a little mean in him. Check out his dunk on Utah Jazz’s Al Jefferson. Look, that was SEXY!! Oh, Jeff had a comment about the dunk on Twitter. Don’t worry Jeff, you’re [...]
TORONTO -- The second 3-pointer of Al Jefferson's NBA career bounced tantalizingly before dropping through the rim. It was the start of something big for the Utah Jazz. Jefferson was 1-for-25 from beyond the arc in his nine-year career when he made a 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation Monday to tie the game against the Toronto Raptors at 104-104, forcing overtime...

It was an unlikely hero in regulation that sent the game to overtime. And into the rabbit hole we went. Al Jefferson hit a 3-pointer that hit just about every part of the rim before falling in that sparked a triple overtime battle between the Raptors...
