Oklahoma City Thunder big man Kendrick Perkins lost weight this summer in order to be able to move better on the floor. That extra mobility didn’t help him last night when he got posterized by one of the game’s best dunkers, Blake Griffin in a 112-100 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers last night.

Griffin scored 22 points in the club’s win over the top ranked Thunder. Through 18 games this season, Griffin is averaging 21.1 points and 11.1 rebounds per contest for the 12-6 Clippers.
