Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul surveyed the court, spotted Blake Griffin to his left and immediately knew where he was going to go with the ball when he left his feet.
John Wall anticipated where the pass was headed, but made the questionable decision to contest the lob. Wall jumped for the ball, but Griffin ascended an extra floor to make the catch and dunk with two hands as Wall soared right past him.
"I just wanted to make sure if I don't tip it, I'm going straight past him, side to side. I'd rather have it the way I had instead of being chest to chest with him," Wall explained afterward.
