Create-a-Caption: Eric Bledsoe controls the vertical and horizontal

Ball Don't Lie

The Los Angeles Clippers had a little bit of fun at the expense of the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night, with some loose Dallas passing and some tight L.A. defense — 18 Clipper steals, 22 Maverick turnovers, 26 Clipper points — led to the likes of DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe doing nasty things in transition en route to a 112-90 pasting. (Caron Butler, Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford did some evil in the half-court, too.)

Bledsoe, in particular, seemed to enjoy his rim-chin-up-and-swing opportunities, leading to this lovely Stephen Dunn picture of the third-year sparkplug free-falling as a helpless Darren Collison rolls to a stop. What does this picture say to you? Best caption wins Mark Cuban trying to melt himself through his seat to freedom, not unlike Bruce Davison in the jail cell in "X-Men." Good luck.

In our last adventure: D.J. Augustin puts a muzzle on Nate Robinson.

Winner, Russell S: See no defense, speak no defense, play no defense.

Runner-up, Joel: /whistle

Ref: "Palming!"

Second runner-up, Kirt C: "I really don't understand why people don't just take the Bull by the face instead."
