Wait, Jeff Green is averaging 20 points per game? Watch his huge dunk from last night (video)

Jeff Green is on a bit of a scoring streak of late.  In his last seven games Uncle Jeff has tallied 25, 32, 19, 25, 28, 16 and 28 points, for an average of 24.7 over the stretch.  Green's season scoring average is now an even 20.0 points per game.

The list of star players Green is outscoring this year is a fairly impressive one: Kyle Lowry (19.7), Al Jefferson (19.5), Marc Gasol (19.5), Pau Gasol (19.5), DeMar DeRozan (19.4), Gordon Hayward (18.9), Dirk Nowitzki (18.8), Dwight Howard (18.8), Chris Paul (18.0), John Wall (17.8), Kevin Love (17.6) and Derrick Rose (17.2).
