Oh, poor Jon Brockman. Every coach he’s ever had has told him to show and recover on the pick-and-roll, but not that there are times that he’s got to defy authority to save his skin. Going mano-a-mano with DeAndre Jordan? Definitely one of those times. Other than the NBA’s resident extraterrestrial, Blake Griffin, Jordan’s as thunderous a dunker as anyone in the league. And he absolutely brought the thunder here. This dunk has everything: body-to-body contact, incredible hops, a terrific flush, and Brockman trying to grab Jordan’s jersey on the way to the floor, desperately searching for something solid in his recently rocked world.
And the charge at the other end? Simply icing on the cake.
