DeAndre Jordan finishes alley-oop by sticking the ball between rim and backboard (VIDEO)

Dec 11, 2013, 9:03 PM EST

Chris Paul finding DeAndre Jordan for an alley-oop slam should be simply another chapter in the ongoing Lob City saga that the Clippers players have no interest in embracing.

But whether the end result is a dunk or something else entirely, it seems destined to end up on highlight reels nonetheless.

Early on in the Clipper’s trip to Boston, Jordan went up to finish a jam set up by Paul, except it was more of the “throw-down” variety than it was an actual dunk at the rim. That left some room for error, and may explain why Jordan stuck the ball between the rim and the backboard instead of flushing it home to give his team the aesthetically pleasing two points.

    Watching the game now. Its the end of the 3rd quarter. Close game.

    Anyway I saw the play live. I have to say one of most amazing dunk misses I have ever seen. I had never seen a wedgy on a dunk attempt. That should be allowed in the NBA dunk contest or for sure two on two H.O.R.S.E. Completing a wedgy off an alley oop pass.

    Two on two H.O.R.S.E. is great because of all the types of pass and shot combination you can have rather than the pedestrain classical H.O.R.S.E.

    When the Clippers miss a dunk it’s funny when JaVale McGee misses a dunk he’s bad mouthed for weeks

      It’s also funny when JaVale McGee misses a dunk. Just check Shaqtin A Fool.

    I love how engaged Rondo is. I really think Rondo can put this team into good range on a nightly basis. They seem to be on the cusp of it.

    Really think they hired Brad Stevens a year too soon…He’s too good, kiss the lottery good bye Celtics.

    Seriously tho, these guys play hard for Stevens

    • jcmeyer10 - Dec 11, 2013 at 9:57 PM

      Haha yah, it’s something think about. Right now I don’t put much in trying to time things. Who knows if he is as tempted next year after they blow for a year. At least this year he could be tempted with potential.

      As Tommy just said, ‘I love the spirit of this team’. I don’t like losing all that much but it’s more fun to go down fighting, and fight this team does. They were in it against a Western Conference contender and a healthy Nets team.

        He just signed a 5 year contract (which was negotiated by his wife) for $22 million with the understanding they are rebuilding and that it was going to be tough from the get go. He’s not going anywhere…

        The guy is a basketball genius and the league is starting to take notice. Had a few shots fallen that should of over the last two nights. and the noticing would be happening a lot sooner. The Nets played for their lives. Think about it- had they lost, how bad would it make the whole trade look after it already looks lopsided as is? That was a win to save face.

        Same goes for tonight. Had Doc lost to a rebuilding team and been out-coached, it would be a dark day. The players said before the game they wanted to win it for him, and believe me, he was holding his breathe until the last 2 minutes of that game until Jamal hit the 2 ridiculous 3’s back to back. Brad coached a hell of a game- he forced Chris to have to shoot. Through the first quarter he had one assist, with 10 of the 12 points. In the end, it was a coaching and defensive duel. Neither team broke 100, yet it felt like it was much higher than that.

        Correction- 6 year, 22 mil.

    Clipper exert themselves in the 3rd to cruise home and sit atop the Pacific. Like the sound of that Headline.

    • jcmeyer10 - Dec 11, 2013 at 9:58 PM

      They closed it out admirably. Good team you got there, wishing Doc the best and thanks for the opportunity to hire Stevens.

        Why cant more posters be like this instead of bitter fans

    • peterjohnjoseph - Dec 12, 2013 at 12:40 AM

      I wouldn’t call that cruising.. I call that having a lead for the first time in the game (minus going up by 2 for one drive in the 2nd), and doing everything they could to keep it until the last 2 minutes of the game when it was still a 2 point game. The Clippers only got to “cruise” for the last 1:50 when Jamal hit those two unreal 3’s to seal it.
