(Or, "Never has 50 percent shooting felt so good.")
There's no video evidence that I can provide to support this, but the greatest near-dunk I've ever seen at a Clippers game between a Clippers team unlikely to make the playoffs and a mediocre Central Division team was one almost thrown down by Jeff Foster(notes) about a decade ago. The shot went in, but he was called for a charge. Probably because the referees didn't want to believe that Jeff Foster could nearly dunk from just inside the free-throw line.
That dunk, or near-dunk, has been topped by another near-dunk. In a Clipper game featuring a middling Central Division squad and a Clipper team that is going nowhere (sadly).

Of course, later on in the proceedings, Griffin got it back. All back.
