When the Los Angeles Clippers needed him the most, Jamal Crawford put together a classic night as he scored twenty-three points in a victory over the Denver Nuggets.
As Crawford was doing his postgame interview after his big night, Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan decided to disrupt it with a singing video bomb:
Those are some quality singing ability, DeAndre!
Just when you thought that Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol was only good at the game of basketball, you might want to check out the below video from tonight’s Grizzlies-Magic game.
During a stoppage of play in the first half, check out Marc trying to use his head to deflect the ball into the basket:
Sadly for Marc, it didn’t go in.

The brow is frightening and I don’t mean Anthony Davis’s brow itself. Davis is a terrifying basketball player at 21 years old and he just showed why against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Davis goes higher and higher and higher for this amazing one-handed alley-oop lob from Tyreke Evans:
And the best is yet to come for Anthony Davis. Good gosh.

As the Phoenix Suns continue their playoff push in the Western Conference, Eric Bledsoe will be a huge reason if they get into the association’s second season.
During the first quarter of yesterday’s Suns-Clippers game, Bledsoe drove into the lane and while being guarded by two Clippers threw a nice over-the-shoulder pass to teammate Alex Len:
That was some fancy passing from...
The Washington Wizards have become a threat to the East. The main reason is John Wall, the newly-minted starting point guard for the Eastern Conference all-star team.
And Wall is an all-star because of plays like this:
Wall just finds ways to make the play. And what a sick pass that was. If Wall keeps playing on that level, the Wizards might finally break through to the top of...
We all know that Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is pretty darn good at shooting the basketball but he can throw down a nice dunk from time-to-time.
During last night’s Warriors-Celtics affair, Curry was able to drive to the basket and throw down this impressive two-handed slam dunk:
That’s some serious levitation from Mr. Curry!

Kevin Durant continues to add to his highlight reel this season. Heck, this MONTH.
KD goes around J.R. Smith and throws it down for the power slam:
That wasn’t very nice, Kevin. We’re going to tell on your mom.

Hassan Whiteside had his coming-out party on national television with a huge game against the Chicago Bulls. He had 14 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 blocks. That’s official.
Whiteside got a postgame interview from ABC/ESPN’s Heather Cox and talked about why he was so motivated:
Because we all do it for the NBA 2K ratings, Hassan! But to be fair, you can always play MyPlayer for...
Charlotte Hornets have had a good run as of late, winning 9 of their last 11. Everything has been good that Lance Stephenson has been in a great mood.

Pregame dance lol

Winning cures a lot of things. With Lance in a good...
There are few things that I enjoy watching more than a poster slam dunk and during tonight’s Wizards-Trail Blazers game, Portland’s Thomas Robinson provided us with one.
In the first quarter of play, Robinson drove to the basket and decided to throw the hammer down on Washington’s Kris Humphries:
That’s a poster, folks!

There are few teams in the association with as much young talent as the Utah Jazz and one of their notable young big guys is Rudy Gobert.
During tonight’s Utah Jazz-Brooklyn Nets affair, Gobert was able to get to the basket and sky for the huge one-handed slam dunk near Mason Plumlee:
In the same game, Gobert had a nice putback dunk after a miss by Gordon Hayward:
As the Detroit Pistons continue their playoff push in the Eastern Conference, they face off today against the Milwaukee Bucks.
In the first quarter of play, Detroit’s Andre Drummond denied Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo and scored on the other end after an off-the-glass alley-oop from Brandon Jennings:
Looking good on that dunk, Andre!
***Drummond off-the-glass alley-oop...
The Atlanta Hawks won their 15th straight game after a tough contest with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Jeff Teague made sure to secure the win with a defensive play and a big exclamation point.
Teague steals the ball from Russell Westbrook and slams the door on the Thunder:
The Hawks have become must-see TV and their fans are finally starting to buy in. Part of it is because of Jeff...
So the Golden State Warriors blew out the Sacramento Kings, 126-101, and it was because the Warriors outscored the Kings, 41-22, in the third quarter.
In actuality, KLAY THOMPSON OUTSCORED THE KINGS, 37-22, IN THE THIRD QUARTER:
Let’s break it down here for a minute before you watch that video again 47 times today. Klay scored 37 of his 52 points in the third. He made 13 for...
While most people know Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson as a shooter, he can rise up to throw down a nasty slam dunk from time to time.
In the second half of tonight’s Kings-Warriors game, a Golden State fast break turned into an alley-oop jam between Stephen Curry and Klay:
Nice dunk, Klay!

The Phoenix Suns made a furious comeback against the Houston Rockets. The game was tied at 111 with 16.6 seconds left. With the Suns having momentum, it looked like we were going to go to overtime.
But James Harden decided he wanted to take it home with this buzzer-beating jumper:
What a move by Harden to get P.J. Tucker out of the way. And, of course, he was going to make an easy...
During Tuesday night’s game between the San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets, some beer was spilled on courtside. And guess who helped clean up the mess?
The great mascot for the Denver Nuggets, Rocky, helped clean up the courtside spill with a towel of his own image:
He even wiped the shoes of the fans with his towel. Awww, Rocky. You’re so nice.

Kevin Durant continues to put on a show. He already did this and this against the Heat.
What did he do after? Dust Udonis Haslem and throw it down:
Seriously, Kevin Durant, stop it.

In the beginning of the Denver Nuggets/San Antonio Spurs game, the Nuggets drew first blood with this difficult alley-oop jam to Wilson Chandler. It was almost literally first blood.
Ty Lawson threw a great lob to Chandler on this one:
What a play by the Nuggets.

The Thunder are keeping it close with the Heat right now but it seems like they’re putting on the better show.
Kevin Durant dusts Chris Andersen (the Birdman) and spikes it right after:
If this were all about flash, the Thunder would definitely be ahead in points.

Russell Westbrook acts like the rim is his punching bag. In this one, he throws down a vicious right-handed slam that made the earth shake.
Put Russell in the dunk contest, people:
This is why the Thunder is (are?!) a much-watch team. Because of Westbrook’s violent slams.

Kevin Durant is the defending Most Valuable Player winner. We all know about his excellent scoring but he’s improved every aspect of his game, including his passing.
On this fastbreak, he found Serge Ibaka, who throws down the two-handed alley-oop flush:
Durant has always been an outstanding finisher but it’s also cool to see him throw it up for another teammate. And Ibaka...
DeAndre Jordan had a huge game against their win over their Boston Celtics on Monday. After the game, he was being interviewed on the local telecast but he wasn’t too focused on the talk.
DeAndre seemed to be enjoying the music being played:
And not only that but Matt Barnes basically ended the interview by putting a towel around DeAndre. Basically, if you were looking for some...
James Harden continues to make a run at the Most Valuable Player award. During the Rockets’ blowout of the Indiana Pacers, Harden scored a season-high 45 points.
Here are the highlights of his 45 points:
James Harden leads the league in scoring with 27.1 points per game. That 45-pointer certainly helped.

There are few players in today’s game that have the fourth quarter clutch ability like Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard.
With less than a minute to go against the Sacramento Kings, Damian was able to drive past the Kings defense and soared for the monster slam dunk:
Damian Lillard, everybody!
