Chris Paul goes to crossover, Damian Lillard trips (on Griffin) and hits floor

It would be so so much more fun to say “Chris Paul drops Damian Lillard with a crossover.”

Except, that’s not really what happened Thursday night in the Clippers 109-108 preseason win.

CP3 went with a behind-the-back dribble (which is not a classic crossover), then as Lillard first slid to his right Blake Griffin popped out to set a pick — Lillard steps on Griffin’s foot, and that causes him to fall. It’s not fair to say the crossover dropped him, although it did get Lillard out of position. Still, it makes a good highlight.
