So forget about the Clippers beating the top two teams in the Western Conference (Oklahoma City and Denver) on back-to-back nights. Or their barrage of four 3-pointers in a 51-second span in the second quarter. Or Chris Paul's sublime 26-point, 14-assist night. It's what happened after Paul's pass to Griffin just more than three minutes into the third quarter that everyone will remember much longer than the 112-100 Clipper victory. The official play by play innocuously described it as "Griffin 3' Driving Slam Dunk (Paul)" at the 8:52 mark. It's kind of like classifying the Taj Majal as a "building."
