In a signature win, Blake Griffin provided a moment of singular, breathtaking brilliance.
It was almost an instant replay of last year's dunk over Timothy Mozgov, more of a gravity-defying throw-down than an actual slam. Only this time, it was over one of the NBA's reputedly best defenders, Oklahoma City's Kendrick Perkins.
The result was the same, and Los Angeles Clippers fans were left roaring en route to a 112-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Blake finished with 22 points, seven rebounds, and pairs of assists, blocks and steals, but it was the Twitter-overloading monster jam that the basketball world was left raving about.
“I was shocked," said DeAndre Jordan. "I didn’t know what to do, so I just grabbed him. I hit him kind of hard,” he said. “I’m going to go home and watch it again. It’s probably going to be the screensaver on my phone.”
