Blake Griffin leads the break, finds DeAndre Jordan for the alley-oop slam (VIDEO)

Jan 20, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

We can probably find some sick Blake Griffin highlights from just about every one of the Clippers’ games this season. But usually he’s on the receiving end of one of these plays, not the one leading the break and throwing the perfect pass.

Midway through the third quarter of Saturday night’s win over the Wizards, Griffin grabs the rebound, and instead of finding his point guard, brings the ball up the floor himself.

Once he gets about 20 feet from the basket, as the defenders get into position to cut him off, Griffin dribbles behind his back, and then quickly finds DeAndre Jordan with the lob at the rim for the vicious dunk in transition.

    It’s always fun watching BG slam-dunk, but it’s even more fun when he demonstrates how his game has changed and matured during the last year– I can even watch his free throws without cringing. Now THAT’s a success! Good for you, Blake.

    Best and most athletic 4-5 combo in the league period.

    Because of their depth….this is the best “TEAM” in the league.

    Thunder – Westbrook and Durant have to play 35-40 minutes per night,or they lose. In a 7 game series against the Clips….that won’t work

    Miami – Positonless Ball won’t work in the playoffs. Bosh plays like a weak small forward and would be DOMINATED on the boards. We never know which D-Wade will show up ( I don’t think his passion is in BBall any more to play hard EVERY night).
    So, LBJ will have to score 50 EVERYNIGHT (like he did in cleveland) to keep the games close

    If the Clips play up to their potential…if they are hungry enough…they will be NBA champs this year and might be the next serious team that could win multiple chips !!

      Just for the record: The Heat have won a title playing positionless ball, that’s what they did in the playoffs last season.

      In the playoffs depth matters less because you can player your starters more minutes because there are no back-to-backs or unreasonable travel demands.
