Chris Paul Rises Up For An Even Rarer Dunk Over Kelly Oubre Jr.

Chris Paul was feeling froggy in the first half of the Clippers’ game against the Washington Wizards Monday night. After throwing down a casual two-handed jam in the first quarter on the fast break, CP3 nearly posterized Kelly Oubre Jr. when he unexpectedly rose up for this dunk in the lane later in the half. Los Angeles would go on to win 108-91, snapping Washington’s four-game winning streak.

Paul led the Clippers with 23 points, but didn’t shoot the ball particularly well, going 9-of-20 from the field and just 1-of-5 from downtown. He added seven assists and five rebounds. Jamal Crawford chipped in 21 points for LA on a much more efficient 9-of-12 shooting from the floor and 3-of-5 from behind-the-arc. They were two of five Clippers players in double-digit scoring, which included a big double-double from DeAndre Jordan, who took up the slack in Blake Griffin’s absence with 15 points and 13 rebounds.

John Wall led the Wizards in a losing effort, posting 23 points, 11 assists and five rebounds, but was just 10-of-23 from the floor and had six turnovers. Otto Porter Jr. had the more efficient game as he shot 8-of-12 from the field and 3-of-5 from long-range en route to 21 points and eight rebounds.

Up next, the Clippers travel to Charlotte to face the Hornets on Wednesday, while the Wizards will head to Toronto Wednesday to meet the Raptors.
