This would have been the alley-oop of the night if the Grizzlies/Kings game would not have ended on a very similar inbound oop which resulted in a game winner (which should not have counted).
On this play, Mike Dunleavy throws the perfect alley-oop pass to Jimmy Butler who out jumps DeMar DeRozan and throws down 2 of his 21 points. The Butler also had 9 rebounds and 6 assists in the Bulls win.
As for All-Star DeMar, he struggled big time and missed 14 of his 17 shots but still scored enough points (10) to pass Andrea Bargnani for 3rd place on the Raptor’s career scoring list. Vince and Bosh are the only two in front of him.
