Great playoff moments: Chris Paul jumps on Dwight Howard’s back (video)

The Clippers lost Game 7 to Houston yesterday, but they gave us one of the playoffs’ greatest moments.

As the Clippers tried to mount a late comeback, DeAndre Jordan went to the free-throw line. When his attempt missed, that gave the Clippers a chance to commit a loose-ball foul on Dwight Howard. Houston had otherwise done a good job of keeping him away from the ball and preventing the Clippers from intentionally fouling him in the last two minutes.

Chris Paul committed the foul – in the most aesthetically pleasing manner possible.
