DeAndre Jordan finishes alley-oop by sticking the ball between rim and backboard (VIDEO)


Chris Paul finding DeAndre Jordan for an alley-oop slam should be simply another chapter in the ongoing Lob City saga that the Clippers players have no interest in embracing.

But whether the end result is a dunk or something else entirely, it seems destined to end up on highlight reels nonetheless.

Early on in the Clipper’s trip to Boston, Jordan went up to finish a jam set up by Paul, except it was more of the “throw-down” variety than it was an actual dunk at the rim. That left some room for error, and may explain why Jordan stuck the ball between the rim and the backboard instead of flushing it home to give his team the aesthetically pleasing two points.
