Blake Griffin and the Brooklyn Nets were having their way against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series Monday evening in the Big Apple.
Giving us flashbacks to his heyday with the Los Angeles Clippers the better part of a decade ago, Blake Griffin brought down the house at Barclays Center with an empathic dunk on the Greek Freak. It was a sight to behold.
We can count on one hand how many times Griffin has dunked this season. He’s nowhere near the athletic marvel that led to the former No. 1 pick earning six All-Star appearances earlier in his career. Just don’t tell that to Giannis.
Seeing a rebirth of sorts since joining Brooklyn on the buyout market this past spring, Griffin started the game 3-of-3 shooting for seven points while adding six rebounds in his first 15 minutes of action.

Giannis didn’t wanna get dunked on by the corpse of Blake Griffin, it’s rough out here.— Ahmed/Mach Hommy's Pray For Haiti AOTY (@big_business_) June 8, 2021
