Eric Bledsoe did his best Blake Griffin impression on Friday night by ferociously throwing down a lob from Chris Paul during the Clippers’ 97-85 win over the Sacramento Kings. The third-year guard got crazy height on his jump, and he went flying through the air to power home the pass from CP3 in the final minute of the game.
Bledsoe only had six points and a horrific seven turnovers in 19 minutes, but his ridiculous dunk is what people will remember. That much height and that much power from a guy who’s only 6-foot-1? If he entered the dunk contest, he could probably put on a show like Nate Robinson. My goodness. Lob City indeed.
Chris Paul tweeted the following after the game:
S/O to my lil bro @ebled24 who just keeps finding a way to do somethin amazing every nite…that dunk and that block 2nite!!! #SkyIsTheLimit

Let’s also give it up to the Clippers for setting a franchise record with their 12th straight win.
