With hoops fans largely focused on the NCAA Tournament on Selection Sunday, the Los Angeles Clippers reminded everyone that there are certain high-flying moves best left to the professionals.
With the Clippers trailing the visiting Knicks in the first quarter on Sunday, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan forced a New York turnover. Paul scooped up the loose ball as Jordan took off toward the far rim. CP3 threw the ball up to his teammate, who caught it without a defender between him and the basket. Channelling his inner Nique, Jordan capped the breakaway by throwing down a powerful windmill dunk.

Not to be outdone -- or outdunked -- by his teammate, Blake Griffin added another highlight to the Lob City reel in the third quarter. Another Knicks' turnover ignited another L.A. fast break, with Jamal Crawford pushing the ball up the left wing. Crawford passed it across the court to CP3, who took one dribble and then floated the ball up for Griffin, who was trailing the play. The 2011 NBA Slam Dunk champion rose up, reached back with his right hand to grab the ball and then powered it through the rim.
The Clippers would go on to defeat the Knicks, 93-80.
