You knew from the matchup, the Oklahoma City Thunder playing against the Los Angeles Clippers, that there would be numerous highlights on both sides of the ball. Blake Griffin was kind enough to provide what is easily a top three dunk of the year so far directly over Kendrick Perkins. Perkins did not stand a chance, but you have to admire him sacrificing his dignity like that.
And Alternate Angles:
Not surprisingly, Twitterverse blew up as well as it reacted to Griffin’s monster slam. LeBron James tweeted, “Dunk of the Year!! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!! Wow!! I guess I'm #2 now. Move over #6."
Buffalo Bills linebacker Kirk Morrison chimed in as well, reporting that a neighbor inquired as to the cause of the commotion, with Morrison tweeting, “Told her, blame Blake Griffin for making me jump off my couch and yell like that.”
And NBA.com’s Twitter account added, “WOW!!!!!!!!! Perkins just got Mozgov'd by Blake Griffin."
In tonight's Clippers-Nuggets game in Denver, Blake Griffin was fouled hard by Al Harrington on a fastbreak. Griffin fell to the floor hard, and then yelled at somebody to "GET THE **** OUTTA HERE!" With what he's saying and where he's looking, it appears he was yelling at the refs, presumably for the foul not being ruled a flagrant. And believe me, I know expletives...

At some point you have to realize that the game has passed you by. That 27 is the new 37. That getting Blake Griffin’s dick thrown in your nostril is not a good look. Hang them up and go be a car salesman or something. I don’t know, clearly basketball is no longer perk’s thing.
I don’t know what our obsession is as sports fans with always wanting to rank players, teams, and plays. So often, we end up arguing for hours and we never stop and appreciate the player/team/play that we are defending.
However, after last night’s Blake Griffin dunk, I think some people are getting a LITTLE bit carried away. Was it the best dunk of the year? Of course....
Chris Paul had 26 points and 14 assists, Blake Griffin added 22 points and a monstrous dunk, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat Oklahoma City 112-100 Monday night, snapping the Thunder's four-game winning streak in a matchup of division leaders.

There was universal agreement that Blake Griffin threw down the dunk of the season a few nights ago, a monster finish over OKC Thunder center Kendrick Perkins. Well, almost universal.
Perkins’ teammate Kevin Durant didn’t join in the League-wide celebration of the epic throw-down, gamely defending his big man by downplaying the play as merely...
We've become accustomed to Blake Griffin being a dunking machine on the NBA court, and with Chris Paul we figured it would be a highlight fest in L.A. However, on Monday night, a simple, but well placed bounce pass from Chris Paul set up what may be Griffin's best in-game dunk ever. Kendrick Perkins never stood a chance.
