The Los Angeles Clippers' "Lob City" remains one of the most exciting box-office attractions in the NBA.
With Chris Paul leading the fastbreak during the first quarter of the Clippers-San Antonio Spurs series Game 5 on Tuesday night, he found a flying DeAndre Jordan for this nasty alley-oop. Jordan had so much hang time on his jump and threw down the dunk with such force that it prompted Clippers owner Steve Ballmer to yell, "Oh my God" from his courtside seat. Yup, DeAndre Jordan had the Clippers going up on a Tuesday. Way up!
Too bad, Jordan blamed himself for Clippers' eventual 111-107 loss. The Clippers center was called for basket interference with 4.3 seconds left on what could have been a game-winning floater from teammate Blake Griffin. With the loss, the Spurs took a 3-2 series lead.
Other NBA playoff action Tuesday night seen James Harden drop 28 points and dish eight assists to lead the Houston Rockets to a 103-94 win over the Dallas to eliminate the Mavericks in five games.
