Just when we thought Blake Griffin couldn’t surprise us anymore, he goes ahead and totally redeems himself.
The Los Angeles Clippers acrobatic superstar completed what may be the dunk of the 2012-13 season, and topped anything done at this year’s Slam Dunk Contest in Houston.
With just over six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and L.A. pummeling the Milwaukee Bucks 106-91, Griffin and guard Jamal Crawford leaked out on the fast break after a Clipper steal.
Rather than take the easy bucket himself, Crawford started his approach to the basket, jumped, split the ball between his legs and tossed it in the air. Griffin did the rest.
Snatching the ball with two hands in mid-air and completing a windmill throwdown.
The crowd at the Staples Center erupted and Griffin was mobbed by teammates after Milwaukee quickly called a timeout.
L.A. went on to a 117-101 win, with Crawford scoring a game-high 25 points, and Griffin netting a triple-double with 23 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists.
