Lob City: Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan Caught Alley-Oops From Their New Point Guards

I’m going to put the over/under of Clippers dunk video posts this season at 2,499. Minutes after DeAndre Jordan dunked on Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum Monday night in a preseason game between the Clippers and Lakers, he took a beautiful alley-oop from Chris Paul and embarrassed Luke Walton. The Showtime Clippers were rolling.

Chauncey Billups threw the ball off the glass to a sprinting Blake Griffin who hung on the rim and got a technical. How quaint. A celebration penalty in the NBA. What are they going to do when Blake or DeAndre decide to Tebow on the rim after a dunk?

In the third quarter, Paul threw a pretty underhanded oop that Jordan put down. Luckily, no Lakers were harmed during the making of that video.

When the game was over, the Clippers won 114 – 95. Chris Paul had 17 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds and 5 steals. Chauncey Billups scored 23 points on just 8 field goal attempts. For one night, the Lob City Experiment worked. For one glorious evening, the Clippers fulfilled every bit of their potential, crushing a playoff team on the road.

Sure it was the preseason and they were playing in their home building, but there was a different color scheme on the floor than they’re used to. Forget the playoffs – which the Clippers will make for the first time since 2006 – this team is going to be a lot of fun to watch. We already expected that, but it’s a whole other thing to actually see these guys in action.
