Gerald Green opened the 2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest in electrifying fashion.

After his Indiana Pacers teammate Lance Stephenson bounced a pass off the side of the backboard, Green caught the ball in mid-air, double clutched and then threw down a two-handed jam.

On Twitter, the first dunk of the contest proved to be a crowd pleaser.
