For a split second on Friday night, Deron Williams must thought he was just as tall as 6-foot-10 Blake Griffin and 7-foot Ryan Hollins as he leapt up to try to dunk over the towering pair.
The way up must have seemed like an eternity for Williams as he saw Griffin elevating as well, arms outstretched and ready to reject Williams’ offering. Well, we have that entire exchange in super-slow motion.
Williams’ Nets wound up beating Griffin’s Clippers 86-76. Williams wound up with just 11 points and 8 assists, while Griffin had 14 points, eight rebounds and two blocks.
Watch Griffin’s rejection in super-slow motion in the video below.

"I told them that I won't go crazy and use bad language, but I was definitely disappointed with the way we played defensively...
In the 2005 NBA draft, the Utah Jazz selected Deron Williams with the #3 pick and Chris Paul went #4 to the New Orleans Hornets. Since that day this has been quite a rivalry. And frankly, it’s been pretty lopsided.
