As the Los Angeles Clippers and Charlotte Bobcats roll their way along in a high-scoring affair, Chris Paul and his two huge big dudes that can jump high continue to give us a show, as is the case with any other night they're in action.
Chris Paul is laughing after he found Blake Griffin for a 3/4 court alley-oop. Ridiculous— J.A. Adande (@jadande) February 27, 2013
There's a general rule when a team takes on the Los Angeles Clippers: If you don't have a young, springy, athletic team, then you're gonna have a bad time.
The Clippers had 10 dunks in the first half, including SIX from @blakegriffin32— Eric Patten (@EricPatten) February 27, 2013
Byron "Don't Cal Me BJ" Mullens and Bismack Biyombo are either too slow, too short or too uncoordinated to deal with this kind of full-on attack that the Clippers took to them in this one.
Believe it or not, there was actually a point in which they were struggling with the Bobcats, even giving up 30 points to Charlotte in the first quarter. These dunks gave them a bit of a shove in the right direction:
Blake Griffin already leads NBA in dunks. After this game he might lap the field. Clips 54, Bobcats 45 at the half.— Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell) February 27, 2013
While Griffin doesn't have anybody left to chase, DeAndre Jordan is a paltry third in dunks behind JaVale McGee, so this dunk-fest that he and Blake went on in this one is certainly going to help his standing in that regard.
In all, there is one more impressive feat than throwing flashy alley-oops all game long that the Clippers made interesting; they kept a blowout win over the Charlotte Bobcats interesting.
