Blake Griffin threw down a right-handed hammer to close out the third quarter in the Los Angeles Clippers' 122-105 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night.

In a nice change of pace, Griffin's slam wasn't the result of a lob. Instead, he darted around a screen to catch a bullet pass from Chris Paul before finishing the designed play in style.
