Gerald Green's Preseason Alley-Oop Helps Timber the Wolves

Tyler Hansbrough’s younger brother, Ben, helps Gerald Green to reintroduce himself to the NBA by doing what he does best: catching a mere mortal flat-footed and putting ‘em in a poster. Heck of a play. Notice how Green starts the inbounds play on the opposite block before coming off two screens and sneaking behind a flashing Roy Hibbert Ian Mahinmi for the lob. In their 2012 preseason debut, the Pacers beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 96-91 last night at the Fieldhouse.

UPDATE: Here is another one. I feel like we’ll be seeing this a lot in the regular season.

    *That wasn’t Hibbert it was Mahinmi haha

    They do look alike however
    And both wear a shooting sleeve for no reason

    No one is doubting Gerald Green’s ups. He’s the guy that made Lebron look like he wasn’t jumping very high.

    That was not technical foul worthy hanging on the rim.. he only held on long enough to ensure that he landed safely and not on someone.

    Agreed. Bad call on the tech. Great dunk.

    This athleticism is what the Pacers lacked in the second unit last year. Green is an upgrade to, to…I cannot even remember his name…Dhantay…String-Of-Boneheaded-Plays?

    But yeah, bad call by the refs…jeez. Green is someone I am excited to see buy into the Pacers system and make the occasional highlight reel.
