DeAndre Jordan threw down a highly difficult alley-oop during the Clippers’ meeting with the Warriors on Saturday, but that’s nothing new. In fact, he treats the crowd to so many flushes each game that dunks like this have become expected. His dunk on Saturday was a bit unusual, though, because it actually dislodged the rim.
As Jordan’s 6'11", 265-pound frame pulled down on the rim, it left the cylinder slightly twisted.
It wasn’t quite Shaq pulling down the entire basket, but it was impressive nonetheless.
Jordan finished with 16 points and 21 rebounds, but Los Angeles lost 115–112 in a wild finish against Golden State. L.A. went on a 13–0 run late in the fourth quarter using its second unit before having a chance to tie the game with a last-second shot.
The Warriors improved to 49–5 while the Clippers fell to 36–19.
