This time, Blake Griffin’s windmill dunk wasn’t so much notable for its dunkosity as it was for the assist that set it up. Jamal Crawford — All-Star snubee Jamal Crawford — tossed a between-the-legs, over-the-shoulder alley-oop to Griffin late in the Los Angeles Clippers’ 117-101 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night at the Staples Center.
Griffin finished with a triple double (23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for Lob City. Crawford was the leading scorer with 25 points (along with four rebounds and two assists) and hasn’t forgotten that All-Star thing.
“I honestly didn’t know what I was going to do,” Crawford said. “We had a whole open court and the best jumper in the world right there and you might as well get creative. That’s something I’ve always wanted to do in a game or if I ever made the All-Star Game.”
For his part, Griffin apparently is feeling no after-effects from the collision of a certain sensitive area of his anatomy with Serge Ibaka on Sunday.
