Video: Clippers' Blake Griffin throws down windmill dunk off alley-oop pass vs. Magic

Blake Griffin threw down a windmill dunk on an alley-oop pass from Matt Barnes during the Clippers' 101-81 home victory over the Magic on Monday.

With a little more than nine minutes remaining in the second quarter and the Clippers leading 39-20, L.A. pushed the ball up the court after clearing a defensive rebound. Jamal Crawford found Barnes with an outlet pass, and the Clippers were free for a two-on-zero break. We all know how those end at this point -- in spectacular fashion -- and they didn't disappoint here, as Barnes scooped a lob to Griffin, who turned sideways for the catch and a smooth finish.

The slam served as a nice follow-up to a DeAndre Jordan poster dunk over Glen Davis during the first quarter.

Griffin finished with 16 points (on 5-for-12 shooting), eight rebounds, six assists and three steals for the Clippers, who improved to 24-13 with the win. Darren Collison tallied 21 points (on 8-for-11 shooting), seven assists and four steals, as he started at point guard with Chris Paul sidelined due to a separated shoulder. Jordan registered 14 points (on 6-for-10 shooting), 17 rebounds and eight blocks in a dominant performance.

Victor Oladipo and Maurice Harkless each netted 22 points for the Magic, who fell to 10-24 with the loss.
