The best garbage time show on Earth can be found in Los Angeles.

The Clippers were at it again during the closing minutes of a 113-90 blowout win over the Mavericks at the Staples Center. Forward Matt Barnes hit guard Jamal Crawford with a touchdown pass on the leak out, and Crawford teed up an over-the-head alley-oop pass for the high-flying Eric Bledsoe, who finished the play with a two-hand reverse dunk, plus a swing on the rim for good measure. The highlight reel play sent DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin into a bit of delighted bouncing. The Clippers moved to 12-6 with the win and currently hold a one-game lead over the Warriors in the Pacific Division. Crawford finished with 20 points, four assists, one rebound and one steal in 31 minutes. Bledsoe added eight points, five assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block in 19 minutes.
