That’s one way to kick a guy while he’s down. Minutes after Carmelo Anthony looked like he might be down for the count with a shoulder injury in the fourth quarter of the Knicks’ game five playoff series with the Celtics, Jeff Green laid down a dunk of monstrous proportions over the New York forward. Green’s approach split the defense, almost causing Anthony and Raymond Felton to run into one another. Check out the SportCenter-worthy dunk in the animation below. Animation via Twitter/@CJZero
