Blake Griffin has a had a multitude of extremely athletic dunks that have humiliated defenders throughout his career, but the one he threw down over Timofey Mozgov is what most people point to as Griffin’s signature slam dunk highlight.

Griffin tried to add Roy Hibbert of the Pacers to his posterization reel on Sunday, and although he tried to do Hibbert in much the same way he did Mozgov, he was unable to come through with the finish.

Still, going up that high and grabbing the back of Hibbert’s head before attempting to dunk over him took some ... initiative, we’ll say, and the effort is certainly something worth noticing.
