Lob City is not dead: CP3, Griffin connect on back-to-back-to-back alley oops (VIDEO)

Nov 1, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

The reports of Lob City’s death have been greatly exagerated.

Golden State lost to the Clippers Thursday night in a wildly entertaining game because of 24 turnovers (11 by Stephen Curry) and with all the changes in Los Angeles one thing remians the same — turn the ball over and they will get out in transition, be spectacular and fire the crowd and everyone up.

Chris Paul and Blake Griffin did that on three straight possessions to the Warriors on Thursday night, part of a huge quarter for CP3 who also had 9 points in the frame. The Clippers went on the win 126-115.

    One of the reasons I love this game –never know when some fun will break out!

    who does 3 exciting alley-oops in a row like that? we need to appreciate how great and entertaining cp3 and blake are. cp3 hasnt won anything? i agree. blake needs to improve his game? yeah. but cp3 is already at the top of PG’s and needs to will his team to the next level. blake is supremely talented and is not all about dunks. they are young and have built a core. lets let them develop like memphis. let the pieces really grow and they should be a force for many years to come.

    Re: #2…I’d like to see a Kirk Goldsberry chart on alley-oops. Guarantee there’s never been a succesful one that was thrown from half court to a guy that was behind the 3 point line.

      If that ever happens they’ll have to start testing them for flubber.

    That shh cray. But the oop of the game was that CP3-to-Jordan collabo in the first quarter.
