Video: Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan finishes huge alley-oop against Celtics
Clippers center DeAndre Jordan finished a monstrous alley-oop during a 111-105 victory over the Celtics on Wednesday.
The second-quarter dunk off a feed from Darren Collison looked similar to Jordan’s Chris Paul-assisted alley-oop throwdown against the Pistons last season. One rather significant difference, though: Whereas then-Detroit guard Brandon Knight aggressively challenged Jordan’s attempt after rotating into a help position defensively, Boston’s Gerald Wallace rotated into the paint but didn’t try to jump with Jordan. Veteran move, Gerald. Veteran move.
Jordan’s latest highlight-reel play came one quarter before Clippers forward Blake Griffin’s flinging dunk over Kris Humphries.
After the game, the two big men graded each other’s dunks. Jordan clearly expected higher marks from his teammate:
