Video: Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan dunks over Magic’s Glen Davis
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan dunked over Magic forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis during Los Angeles’ 101-81 home victory on Monday.
With L.A. leading 18-3 midway through the first quarter, a cherry-picking Jordan found himself out in front of the action. Davis hustled back in an attempt to muster up some transition defense, but his angle contesting the play wasn’t great.
Jordan made a beeline toward the hoop from the left wing and elevated from outside the protected circle, rising high to attempt a right-handed throwdown (even though he’s left-handed). Davis contested from Jordan’s right side, coming across his body in hopes of deflecting the ball. Instead, the 6-foot-11 Jordan easily finished the dunk over the top of the 6-foot-9 Davis, drawing an and-one call in the process.
We’ve seen more devastating work from Jordan, who is best known for destroying Brandon Knight, but this posterization still led to a little “stank face” celebration.
Later, in the second quarter, Blake Griffin followed up Jordan’s poster with a smooth windmill dunk off an alley-oop pass from Matt Barnes.
Jordan registered 14 points (on 6-for-10 shooting), 17 rebounds and eight blocks in a dominant performance. Griffin added 16 points (on 5-for-12 shooting), eight rebounds, six assists and three steals for the Clippers, who improved to 24-13.
Victor Oladipo and Maurice Harkless each scored 22 points for the Magic, who fell to 10-24.
