Lob City Isn’t Done: Blake Griffin And Chris Paul Teamed Up For Back-To-Back-To-Back Alley-Oops In 35 Seconds
Before the season started, Blake Griffin said that the Clippers Lob City identity was “done.” Two games into the season, this happened.
The Daily Yam: This Tyson Chandler Alley-Oop Was One Of The Only Things To Go Right For The Knicks Last Night
Welcome to The Daily Yam, bringing you the top play from the night before, anything else you might have missed, and what to look forward to today. It’s your one-stop shop when you skipped last night’s action, or have forgotten what day it is. Last night, Tyson Chandler’s beastly oop from Raymond Felton brought Knicks fans to their feet — if only for a moment.
Welcome to The Daily Yam, SportsGrid’s newest feature, bringing you the top play from the night before, anything else you might have missed, and what to look forward to today. It’s your one-stop shop when you’ve missed last night’s action, and/or have forgotten what day it is. Today, we once again see how annoyingly good LeBron James is at playing basketball.
The Daily Yam: This Vicious Montrezl Harrell Alley-Oop Was The Best Part Of A Roller Coaster First Half
Welcome to The Daily Yam, SportsGrid’s newest feature, bringing you the top play from the night before, anything else you might have missed, and what to look forward to today. It’s your one-stop shop when you’ve missed last night’s action, and/or have forgotten what day it is. Today, we celebrate the yam that was Montrezl Harrell grabbing the ball 12 feet out of the air and throwing it down on Michigan.
Isn’t it the best when LeBron (and Dwyane Wade, in this instance) does something that is basically impossible, but looks really easy for him? Yeah, the full-court alley-oop applies. Lovely GIF (and video), after the jump.
It’s not a rare sight to see a Raymond Felton-Tyson Chandler alley-oop these days, but during last night’s game against the Miami Heat, the play was especially important. No Carmelo Anthony, no Amar’e Stoudemire, no Iman Shumpert. The Knicks were shorthanded, but no matter – Raymond Felton went off for 27 points and 7 assists in New York’s 112-92 victory, the second 20-point win over Miami this season.
Even though this one came on a simple fast break, and Blake threw it down with elegance and respect, placing the ball in the hoop and barely making contact with the rim, there’s something thunderous about everything he does. The anticipation might be the best part, knowing that Lob City is coming. YES, ANOTHER ONE.
Hey look, it’s Chris Paul making a nice pass and Blake Griffin dunking the ball! Nice to know that Lob City is back in business. Griffin actually got a technical foul on the play for yapping away at Paul Millsap, but we think it was worth it. Who said the NBA preseason couldn’t be exciting?
Usually, the point guard throws the lob pass to the forward, who then dunks it with the appropriate level of force. But in Oklahoma City (or, in this situation, when the Oklahoma City Thunder play in San Antonio) there are no such rules. There is only the scoring of points, and however that gets done is fine by them. Video after the jump.
Question: Should the Wizards sign Chris Brown for next season? The answer, of course, is no. But the thought has to cross your mind for a moment after the watching singer/rapper/dancer/loose cannon run the break and hit John Wall for an alley-oop. Video after the jump.
