DeAndre Jordan’s alley-oop from Chris Paul may be the dunk of the year (Video)
During the second quarter of the Los Angeles Clippers’ 129-97 beatdown on the Detroit Pistons, Jordan charged down the paint, took a lob from Paul and threw it down with amazing force that knocked would-be defender Brandon Knight to the ground.
The incredibly powerful display caused the Clippers bench players, the fans, and TV announcer Ralph Lawler to lose their minds. Coach Vinny Del Negro even had to hold back Blake Griffin, who was supremely fired up from the bench.
Jordan has thrown down quite a few sick dunks this season, but that tops all of them. His distance from the basket, height on the dunk, and powerful display over Knight all combine to make this one of the best of the season.
Who would have figured that on a team with Griffin and Eric Bledsoe, it might be DeAndre Jordan with the best dunk of the season?
