By now you’ve seen Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin’s dunk over Oklahama City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins. If not, well, welcome back to earth, we’ll show you the video again in a second.
Perkins’ teammate Kevin Durant, who’s easily one of the best players in the league, wasn’t too impressed with Griffin’s effort. And that makes him probably the only one.
“I have no appreciation for it at all,” said Durant. “It was a layup, I think. He threw the ball in and got fouled and made his free throw, so it was three points at the end of the day, no matter how it happened, how it went in the basket. I really wasn’t impressed.

Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.

Pure sickness. And better than the Mozgov dunk because unlike Timofey, Kendrick Perkins tried to challenge it.
I think this fan's reaction sums things up nicely...

Clippers forward Blake Griffin delivered another highlight-reel dunk on Monday night and the Web was quick to react.
The term “posterized” is probably the most overused word in basketball. Very few of the dunks we rant and rave about over the course of an NBA season actually make their way onto a poster. Unfortunately for Kendrick Perkins, some of them do. Even worse, some become T-shirts. Check out this Blake Griffin T-shirt that The Basketball Jones passed along:

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant says he was not all that

The Oklahoma City Thunder own the best record in the NBA thanks in large part to the tremendous offensive play of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
The Thunder figure to become all the more dominant if Serge Ibaka can build on his latest shot-blocking display defensively.

The formula used in determining the game of the week is fairly simple; I use my power rankings to find the highest rated matchup of tyhe week and then find out if the game is on a network I can watch, since I don’t have the NBA league pass.

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...
