We have become desensitized to alley-oops from Chris Paul to DeAndre Jordan or Blake Griffin. We’ve seen so many amazing ones they seem routine.
But even for Jordan, this one is pretty spectacular. That pass was up in the rafters and behind him, just didn’t matter.
The Clippers put the beat down on the Celtics, leading by 35 at one point. Then Doc Rivers tried to play his bench. Then that lead shrunk to 13 points, and the Clippers had to bring their starters back in. Then came hack-a-DJ. The Clippers still won, but it was a lot harder than it should have been.
