Putback Death Match: Blake Griffin Vs. Nick Collison

Blake Griffin

A dunk-off between Blake Griffin and… Nick Collison? The former Jayhawk must’ve been feeling that extra NCAA Championship juice in his legs last night with his old school playing for it all. Griffin did what he always does, which is something hardly anyone else in the world can do. Thanks mostly to Randy Foye because of his eight triples, the Clippers went into the Big D and took the air out of the Mavs. Foye wasn’t perfect though, and his missed shot here led to this.

If you need some confirmation that Zach Randolph isn’t all the way back, check out this video. Compared to the Earth-bound Z-Bo, Collison looks like Tom Chambers. In the end, even though seeing this one live felt like a six-pointer, it didn’t matter. Memphis got the W, and Collison got the spot in today’s top 10. And yet the craziest thing the big man did all night wasn’t this dunk; it was finishing with a plus/minus of minus-six.
