It was a Clippers game so the best dunk was... Dwight Howard’s? Yup.

Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

The last five seasons, Dwight Howard has led the league in most dunks in a season. This season, Blake Griffin is pushing him.

Tuesday night, Howard taught the Clipper rookie a few lessons — about protecting the rim, about the need to diversify his offensive game (although Griffin is getting there fast), about passing out to open shooters. Oh, and this is how you dunk, young man.

Great assist by Jameer Nelson, too. Well, maybe not the best pass ever but when you have Howard to go get the rock it doesn’t have to be.
