Everyone talks about Blake Griffin having the home court advantage in the NBA All-Star Dunk Contest Saturday night because his Clippers play at Staples Center.

DeMar DeRozan may be a Raptor, but he is an L.A. guy too — he went to high school in Compton then played his college ball at USC. He will have some fans in the stands.

Especially if he pulls off a few of the dunks he’s been practicing, which you can catch in this video. And DeRozan was smart to bring in Jus Fly to consult a little — this isn’t in-game dunking, it’s a show.

    I love dunk at 1:30 mark… reminds me of Rudy Fernandez bouncing it off the back of the backboard and reverse dunking. He didn’t get much credit because it took him 10 tries to get it right.
