The Los Angeles Clippers couldn't pull out a road win against the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday night, Jordan Farmar's late-game 3-pointer took care of that, but that doesn't mean we weren't treated to the usual batch of above-rim goodness from Los Angeles' duo of leapers in center DeAndre Jordan and All-Star big forward Blake Griffin.

Secondly, though it may not be the most impressive dunk of Blake Griffin's career, the combination of the gorgeous spin, wrap-around and throwdown over Nets big man Kris Humphries might rank as perhaps the most compelling dunk of Griffin's season and a half in the NBA:
Toss in the classic New York Net uniforms Humphries and fellow victim Johan Petro were wearing, and you can't help but be reminded of some of Julius Erving's finer ABA moments. Thanks for that, Blake.
