DeAndre Jordan delivered one of the highlights of the NBA season during the Los Angeles Clippers 129-97 beatdown of the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night, catching a lob from point guard Chris Paul and hammering down a dunk that sent Brandon Knight sprawling to the deck.
The play was the Pistons’ low point in a horrible effort — the Clippers shot 62.5 percent from the field with 14 3-pointers, and Jordan’s dunk was just one of 14 L.A. had in the game.
But perhaps no dunk this NBA season will match Jordan’s monster:
Knight attempted to laugh off the embarrassing moment after the game, tweeting the following:
It wasn’t in the scouting reports that the clippers threw lobs lol

Credit to Knight for that reaction — especially since he just earned himself a spot on NBA highlight reels for eternity.
