Despite standing at just 6'1", the Kentucky product provided the sickest dunk in a game that was full of them. While Blake Griffin did his usual thing, Bledsoe stole the show, soaring off of two feet, reaching back and finishing with authority.
It was a beautifully violent dunk, one that proved to be an exclamation point at the end of the Clippers' dominant 97-85 victory.
Also, Chris Paul deserves plenty of credit for throwing a gorgeous no-look lob pass, when he could have done the respectful thing and just gone for the layup. Sportsmanship be damned—CP3 is a showman. He knows what the fans want, and he gave it to them.
The Clips fans were clearly appreciative, evidenced by the guy in the white-collared shirt who almost dislocated his elbow while setting a record for most fist pumps per second.
Thanks to that man, it was perhaps the perfect play: beautiful pass, amazing dunk, classic fan reaction. What more could you ask for?
Sure, Bledsoe had more turnovers (seven) than points (six). But when two of your points look like that, it doesn't really matter what else you do.
