Video: Blake Griffin's Dunk Over Kendrick Perkins That The Entire World Is Talking About

We didn't want you to be the only person in line for coffee this morning who hadn't seen Blake Griffin's monster posterization of Kendrick Perkins last night.

The throwdown in the Clippers-Thunder game sent shockwaves across the Internet, with Twitter instantly blowing up with 140 characters of gibberish that all basically translated to, "Holy sh!t, Blake!"

Dime Magazine quickly called it one of the best dunks in NBA history.

The Los Angeles Times has more on the setup to the dunk, including this quote from Griffin:

"Like I said, it's the timing of the play. It's the timing of when I got
the pass, the late rotation, all that," Griffin said of his dunk. "If
all that comes together at the right time, it happens. It's not like I
caught the ball and said, 'OK, let's go make something happen.' It just
kind of came together like that."

On the other side, Perkins seemed to take it in stride. From probasketballtalk:

“It happens,” Perkins said in the corner of the Thunder locker room. “A
the end of the day if you’re a shot blocker, you’re going to get dunked
on. It was a great play that he made. Obviously I wish I wasn’t in it,
but it was a great play that he made.”

Was it better than LeBron's completely-jumping-over-a-defender slam on Sunday?

The Blake Show and the Clippers will in Philadelphia on Friday, February 10th. You may want to get a ticket to that one.

BOX SCORE

PHILADELPHIA — Kurt Rawlings connected with Christopher Williams-Lopez for a 4-yard touchdown with 4:11 remaining in the game and Yale rallied for a 24-19 victory over Pennsylvania on Saturday.

Rawlings threw for 199 yards and two scores for the Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1 Ivy League), who won at Penn (2-4, 0-3) for the first time since 2007. Yale's Zane Dudek carried 12 times for 103 yards and a score.

The Quakers, who trailed 18-10 at the half, recovered a pair of fumbles in the fourth quarter to take a 19-18 lead. The first turnover led to Jack Soslow's 44-yard field goal and the second resulted in a 2-yard TD run by Tre Solomon. But Rawlings led the Bulldogs on an 11-play, 80-yard drive for the winning score.

Penn senior Justin Watson caught 10 passes for 120 yards and a 23-yard touchdown reception. It was an Ivy League record 16th career game with at least 100 yards receiving and he tied a school record with a TD catch in his sixth straight game. His 27 career scores ties the school record.
