The Los Angeles Clippers took a tough loss last night against the Phoenix Suns — also known as the worst team in the Western Conference. Despite that fact, bum ankle and all, Blake Griffin managed to perform not one, not two, but three spectacular dunks against the Suns last night. Check it out, courtesy of NBA.com:
The Suns, now under the tutelage of interim head coach Lindsey Hunter, were benefitting from that “new coach smell”. Unfortunately for the other team in LA, it isn’t a phenomenon that manifests itself 100% of the time.
One of the reasons for the popularity with the Clippers is Griffin and his high flying ability. Sure, all seven Suns fans that exist can boast that even with the popularity and the wins and the success, the Clippers still lost to their favorite basketball team.
But while they did beat the Clippers last night, it wasn’t very impressive and at the end of the day Los Angeles is destined for the playoffs and the Suns — well the Suns are just hilarious to watch try and play basketball.
