NBA Playoffs 2014: Blake Griffin's Slip 'N Slide (GIF)

After falling to the Golden State Warriors 109-105 in game 1 to lose home court advantage on Saturday night, the Los Angeles Clippers vowed to refocus and simply play a better game in game 2 Monday night.

The Clippers have obviously done just that, building a 31-point lead in the third quarter and assuring that the series will be all tied at one when they head north to take on the Warriors at the Oracle Arena in Oakland on Thursday night (10:30 pm EST, TNT).

Griffin is in the midst of one of the very best games of his career, totaling 35 points on 13-of-17 shooting from the field and nine-of-10 shooting from the charity stripe to go with six rebounds and two steals. The Clippers’ turned this one into a laugher quickly and as the game went on, we got another laugh when Griffin dove for a lose ball and looked like he was sliding down a Slip ‘N Slide on his way out of bounds.
