Jamal Crawford Goes Globetrotter with Between-the-Legs Oop to Blake Griffin

Jesse DorseyFeatured ColumnistMarch 7, 2013

En route to perhaps his most effective game of the year, Blake Griffin put the icing on the cake of Los Angeles' 117-101 win over the Milwaukee Bucks with this huge alley-oop from Jamal Crawford.

It was nonchalant, yet ever so powerful, as Crawford took off with Griffin streaking down the lane. Crawford leapt, went between the legs with the ball and passed it up over his head.

Now, a normal slam home would have been fine here. But Griffin decided to put this one over the top, sending in a wicked windmill in the process, leaving the hoop shaking in its little hoop boots.

That Crawford to Griffin alley oop might be the play of the year.

It may have been his 46th alley-oop of the year, but something tells me that we're going to be seeing that one more than any of the others past this season.

Not only did Griffin put down one of the most visually exciting dunks of the year, but he also fiddled around and ended up with an impressive stat line.

3rd career-triple double for Blake Griffin. First of the season. He's been pure dynamite tonight.

Blake Griffin continues to improve every facet of his game, and while the Lakers' continued quest to make the playoffs is going to be the big news, this Clippers team is slowly turning people into believers.
