Video: Blake Griffin throws it down over Serge Ibaka

Apr 12, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

Wednesday night the Clippers were more than just a highlight factory, they were a team that started to live up to all that promise and found a way to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in Kevin Durant‘s house. It was a quality win.

But of course, there were highlights, too. Like Chris Paul’s game winner. And this one — Blake Griffin with the monster dunk over Serge Ibaka. Credit Ibaka for going for the block and not just trying to get out of the way, but when Griffin has a head of steam like that I’m not sure anyone stops him. Also of note, not a lot of showboating after this Griffin dunk.

    It’s pretty easy to dunk when you commit a foul to prevent him from getting the opportunity to block your shot.

      Is every dunk a foul to you? What the hell is wrong with you? That was one of the cleanest dunks hes made and you still find a reason to cry. Shut up.

        dannymac watch Blakes left hand during the dunk, pretty sure thats an offensive foul.

        Yep. Just checked what you were talking about and guess what? you’re STILL wrong.

      His left arm doesn’t even touch Ibaka, and if it grazed him then that isn’t enough to warrant a foul. The video above makes that more than obvious. This dunk is nothing like the facials served up on Pau, which were both clear fouls. You’re whinier than Lamar.

        so the dude is not allowed to protect himself? Either he get’s fouled and hammered or he relatively protects himself and gets called for an offensive foul?
        That’s a pretty crappy scenario to believe in for the league unless you want to see boring ol’ defensive games, personally I’ll pass on that. I’m more of a tie goes to the runner type of fan…

        If you watch at quality 720 and pause it right at 4 seconds you can clearly see he creates space with his left hand, which IS a foul. But its ok you Blake riders can enjoy the same old dunks over and over again because thats all he is going to ever be able to do.

    Every player brings his own talent to make a team work; this is Blake’s talent and he’s very good at what he does. He’s young –he can only get better.

    Aint nothin to see here. Same as always. Using his left hand to create space (offensive foul) then jammin it down. He better get his floor game right real soon cuz those hops wont be there forever.
