It's no secret the Los Angeles Clippers are called lob city for a reason. They can dunk, and they're good at it.
At the end of Wednesday night's Clippers vs. Bucks game, the Clippers
were on a fast break and Jamal Crawford found Blake Griffin on a
between-the-legs and over-the-shoulder alley-oop in which Blake capped off with a windmill dunk. Absolutely ridiculous to pull this off in a game. Dunk of the year hands down.

Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is not going to play tonight against the Denver Nuggets because of a sore left ankle.
Crawford said he rolled his ankle in the second quarter of a game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night at Staples Center.
He got treatment throughout the day but shook his head no when asked if he could play against the Nuggets.
Crawford averages 17.2 points...
LOS ANGELES -- In a moment of pure spontaneity, Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin created a singular moment Wednesday night at Staples Center, something so amazing it had to be seen over and over again to be appreciated.
By now, it must certainly be a YouTube sensation -- a fast break basket that began with Crawford passing the ball between his legs and flipping it in the air for...

Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin hooked up for a very fancy alley-oop during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Crawford poked the ball out of Monta Ellis’ hands to teammate Eric Bledsoe, then took off for the fast break with Griffin. Crawford jumped and tossed up a through-the-legs alley-oop to Griffin who finished with a powerful windmill...
I’m not sure anything needs to be said. The Clippers are a threat in the Western Conference, they are a sight to see, and most importantly, that alley-oop was just plain nasty.
The Bucks couldn’t even be mad at that.
I was trying to figure out how to adequately sum up what happens in this video so I could come up with a concise title for this article, but there's just too much to summarize. Jamal Crawford. Blake Griffin. Dunk. Enjoy.
Blake Griffin needs to be applauded for finding the humor in the dirty flangrant-2 foul that was delivered to him by Serge Ibaka the other night. While the NBA hit him with a hefty fine, Griffin wisely kept quiet until early Wednesday morning when he decided to get creative with a message from his future self: Kid Blake: Who are you? Future Blake: you from the future… Don’t listen...
PLAYA VISTA, Calif. Blake Griffin would have preferred to see Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka get suspended after striking him in the groin on national TV Sunday, but the Clippers forward said he would accept whatever the NBA decided in the matter.
I dont really see how it can be let go, but if it is, whatever, Griffin said after practice Tuesday. Im not going to do anything...

Is there a double standard in the NBA regarding fouls, suspensions, and fines? Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Clippers thinks so. After the league handed out a $25,000 fine to Serge Ibaka for his groin shot to Blake Griffin, the league has been speaking out. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade both think Ibaka should have been suspended.If you didn't see the punch, check...
The only thing I can think of is that Ibaka sent Keri Hilson up to David Stern’s office to take care of the problem. I rather take a Metta World Peace elbow, than getting hit in the groin.
Serge Ibaka has been fined $25k by NBA “for striking Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers in the groin area.”

Everyone loves watching the Los Angeles Clippers play basketball, as they are simply an incredibly entertaining team. There is no better show in the NBA than Lob City. They have the best point guard in the NBA, in Chris Paul, another star in Blake Griffin, who is the NBA’s most explosive dunker, the NBA’s soon to be Sixth Man...
