The Los Angeles Clippers are still doing their best to overtake the Denver Nuggets for the third seed in the Western Conference, and a flurry of Blake Griffin dunks sprinkled throughout the team's final two games of the season might just get the job done.
With Chauncey Billups back in the lineup for the first time since March 27, and the Clippers well on their way to an eventual 93-77 blowout victory over the Portland Trail Blazers Tuesday night, Billups threaded a pass between his own legs down to Griffin in some third-quarter action, who had an open lane to the basket.

Griffin absolutely skied out to throw this one down, getting well above eye level with the rim. It may just be another in the long list of Blake Griffin highlights this season, but Billups' involvement in the play surely brought a smile to many Clippers fans' faces.
