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.— chris palmer (@ESPNChrisPalmer) March 7, 2013
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.

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.
