All Things Nuggets:
Before Timofey Mozgov became the Nuggets starting center this season, he was best known for being dunk upon/over by Blake Griffin, back when Timofey played for the Knicks. Well, on Monday night, the Clippers’ Griffin unleashed a similar dunk on a similarly sized center – Kendrick Perkins of the Thunder (video below).
As the broadcasters lost their minds, here was their debate:
“Is it possible to top what he did last year?”
“Almost a Mozgov.”
“It’s better than a Mozgov!”
So you be the judge – which dunk is better? Lemme know below in the comments section.
Griffin vs. Mozgov
Griffin vs. Perkins

There are lonely feelings and then there’s the feeling Kendrick Perkins has after being obliterated by Blake Griffin on this dunk. Even the Kia Optima that Griffin jumped over in the dunk contest last year feels sorry for Perkins. Dunk of the year? That depends if Griffin doesn’t want to take any more souls before the end of the season.
Kendrick Perkins got ethered by Blake Griffin. Perkins never had a chance.
