The Memphis Grizzlies had been having some issues with their transition offense against San Antonio, but it would end up being the fast break that allowed them to come back from down seven in the fourth quarter and beat the rival Spurs in overtime.  Following a run out and Zach Randolph layup that brought the Grizzlies to within two, Rudy Gay finished a break ignited by a Tony Allen steal with a right-handed sledgehammer of a jam.  Tie game. The most awesome thing about this dunk is Manu Ginobili.  Just watch him duck for cover when he realizes there’s absolutely nothing else he can do.  Rudy Gay was about to try to blow up the basket, and Manu could only cover his eyes and hope he’d survive the blast.  Somehow, he lived to flop another day. Normally I’d probably give this dunk a 7.5 (not a lot of contact, none up high), but I’m bumping it up to 8 for two reasons — the sheer fright that it inspired in Manu Ginobili, and the magnitude of the play.  Having been watching the game live, I was actually fearful that the Fed Ex Forum was going to explode.  In the words of the great Kevin Harlan, Rudy Gay SUCKED THE GRAVITY RIGHT OUT OF THE BUILDING!!! with this one. Honorable mentions to MarShon Brooks and Kenny Faried.
