Chris Paul is back from injury, which can only mean one thing: Lob City is back too, ya’ll! In other news, the Clippers were DESTROYING the 76ers 71-30 early in the third quarter, which means your NBA-watching obligations are over for today — unless you like dunking. [frank den]
University of South Florida senior forward Victor Rudd skied for this spectacular dunk over Junior Etou of Rutgers. The nasty slam was reminiscent of Blake Griffin’s legendary dunk on Timofey Mozgov from 2010. You just got Mozgov’d.
No place like the Staples Center for Blake Griffin to be ‘singing’ along to Tupac’s “California Love.” Do you, big fella. [FTW]
In Monday night’s game at Milwaukee, Blake Griffin had the wide open look for the dunk and the rim just got the best of him this time. The rim just wanted it more. This isn’t the first dunk Blake has missed this year. It’s a long season, the legs get tired. The missed bunny didn’t
It appears that Blake Griffin may have had his powers stolen by the Monstars before tonight’s game against the Bobcats because he suddenly forgot how to throw down. Slob city. But on a serious note, we’ll give Blake a pass on this one because the pass was less than impressive. [@SBNationGIF]
They Los Angeles Clippers have played down the “Lob City” mantra this year, but their aerial assault have only enhanced their legend. On Monday DeAndre Jordan or Blake Griffin dunked, slammed and jammed all over the Detroit Pistons with such ease they were on fire and entering “NBA Jam” mode.
It wasn’t only Kris Humphries who got demoralized by dunks on Wednesday night, the entire Boston squad got dunked on by Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. It was a complete assault of fast break jams, alley-oops and nasty facials. It wasn’t pretty for the Celtics as the Clippers went on to win 111-105.
Wait, is it Mozgov’d? Or, is it Perkins’d? We’re not sure. Maybe they’re interchangeable? Either way, I’m sure basketball purist nitwits on the Interwebs will make some sort of proclamation that this not really a dunk — and, thus, not a posterization — because Blake Griffin’s hand didn’t make contact with the rim. Those people
And by “all over”, we mean over, and over, and over…*big inhale*…and over, and over again. DeAndre Jordan took care of the posterizing, while Blake Griffin took home the dunk of the night — an alley-oop windmill that was somewhat forced by a less-than-perfect lob from Matt Barnes (he’s not exactly Chris Paul, ya know).
ESPN is reporting that the Knicks have discussed the idea of proposing a trade to the Clippers that would send Carmelo Anthony to Los Angeles in exchange for Blake Griffin. Sources also say that Clippers management has had internal discussions about such a deal, but neither team have spoken to one another about a potential
Before the Los Angeles Clippers took on the Utah Jazz on Saturday night Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan starred in an impromptu slam dunk contest. Griffin tossed an alley-oop to himself off-the-backboard then went between-the-legs for a monster jam. Meanwhile Jordan performed a phenomenal baseline 180-degree between-the-legs slam. I give the edge to Griffin in
Blake Griffin took out his frustrations of being unfairly being kicked out of the hard-fought game against the Golden State Warriors on the Portland Trailblazers with this massive put-back dunk.
