Blake Griffin Dunk On Perkins
January 31, 2012 by staff
Blake Griffin Dunk On Perkins, Blake Griffin’s jaw-dropping one-handed jam over Kendrick Perkins sent Los Angeles Clippers fans into a frenzy, fired up his teammates, lit up the Twitterverse and burned the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Griffin had 22 points to go with Chris Paul’s 26 points and 14 assists in a 112-100 victory Monday night that snapped the Thunder’s four-game winning streak in a matchup of division leaders.
Griffin downplayed his monster move after the game, a sly smile only briefly breaking his serious expression.
“CP commands so much attention out there. He came off the pick-and-roll and he hit me in stride,” Griffin said.
Paul added: “I told Blake after the game, ‘Thanks for letting me be part of that.’”
DeAndre Jordan grabbed Griffin from behind in a celebratory bear hug as the basket got replayed over and over in the third quarter.
Jordan, who had 11 points and 11 rebounds, couldn’t help himself.
“I was shocked. 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.”
Griffin said he knew he’d made an impression judging by the crowd’s raucous response. Then he felt Jordan behind him.
“He armlocked me,” Griffin said. “I couldn’t breathe.”
The reaction on Twitter came fast and furious.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald tweeted: “Blake Griffin just made one of the top dunks of the season. Maybe even his career. (hashtag) Beast.”
Tracy McGrady of the Atlanta Hawks weighed in with “yo, crazy crazy dunk by the dude Blake Griffin.”
