Blake Griffin Dunks On Chris Kaman, Elton Brand As Clippers Beat Mavericks (VIDEOS, PHOTO)

Smart move, Chris Kaman.

The Mavericks center looked like he was going to get Mosgov'd (or Perkins'd or Gasol'd) late in the third quarter when Chris Paul and Blake Griffin ran a pick-and-roll that looked entirely too easy. Griffin received a pass on the low post and exploded to the rim without hesitation.

Kaman was the only Dallas player under the basket but by the time he moved over a couple steps, Griffin had already taken off. Kaman barely jumped to defend Griffin allowing him to throw down an uncontested left-handed slam.

Maybe Kaman had learned from a previous mistake when he tried to stop Caron Butler from attacking the hoop. Not only did Butler posterize him, he did so while sticking his left hand in Kaman's face.

It seemed like the Mavericks could only watch as the high-flying Clippers throw down dunk after dunk. Griffin added a couple more spectacular slams to highlight-reel including this one over Elton Brand. Jamal Crawford showed off his ball-handling skills and served a nifty alley-oop to DeAndre Jordan. Even Eric Bledsoe got in on the action.

But none of those highlights were captured in a single image better than Stephen Dunn's Getty photo of Griffin's dunk over Kaman (Scroll down to see the other dunks).
