Blake Griffin Throws Down Alley-Oop Off Backboard From Matt Barnes (Video)

The most exciting moment came in the fourth quarter, when the Clippers forced...

Blake Griffin gets wild with an off-the-glass alley oop (VIDEO)

Blake Griffin turned Auburn Hills, MI into Lob City in the last 30 seconds of the Clippers 88-76 win over the Pistons Monday night.  Griffin finished the tilt with two dunks, including an ridiculous catch and stuff from an off-the-backboard lob by teammate Matt Barnes.

Damian Lillard, Joakim Noah, Jamal Crawford Claim NBA Quarter-Season Awards (Photos)

Every team has now played at least 20 games, which means that the NBA season is officially one-quarter of the way complete. The league does not recognize quarter-season achievements, most likely because they want to save all that money it would take to produce those extra trophies, but that is no reason the rest of us cannot recognize these early-season performances.
