Blake Griffin’s incredible block on Deron Williams in super-slow motion (VIDEO)

Nov 24, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

We showed you Blake Griffin‘s insane block on Deron WIlliams last night, because hey, that’s what we’re here for. But the NBA recognizes greatness, and has the cameras in place to give us a more special look at plays like this when they happen.

This super-slow motion look at it makes it seem even more impressive.

Williams turns the corner on Chris Paul, and has every intention of throwing it down over Blake Griffin and/or Ryan Hollins. But Griffin times his jump perfectly, and meets Williams at the rim with hand firmly on the ball to get the block, before taking it away altogether on his way back down.

Just a beautiful play all around, and an amazing job by the league capturing it in this way for the fans to see.

    Lesson to D. Will: never try to dunk on someone who’s bigger, stronger and jumps higher than you.

    Nothing outstanding here he is supposed to do that to a point guard. I credit dwill for the attempt more than the block.

    no-foul? I’ve seen cleaner blocks get called in the NBA

      …..That was a completely clean block.

      Griffin’s right hand grasps the ball (no contact with Willliams) while his left hand is in the air (again, no contact with Williams).

      The only contact between the two players is generated by Deron Williams, who reaches out with his left hand (the hand without the basketball) and attempts to push Griffin back as he tries to dunk with his right hand.

      Watch the super slow motion – completely clean.

    Nets came up big in the last 3 minutes. Clippers did not, and lost.

    Work game I’ve seen all year by the Clipps. Although they tried to out do that tonight in Atlanta. They need to figure it out quick as they will become yesterday’s story in no time.

    I guess I’m getting pretty old now. I remember when point guards had to be able to dribble.

    Beautiful slo-mo photography. Cameramen don’t get enough credit for some of the work they do.
