DeAndre Jordan auditioning for NBA Dunk contest with epic 1st quarter

Published Add your comment

In the first quarter against Detroit Pistons tonight, DeAndre Jordan of the LA Clippers was certainly auditioning for the NBA All-Star Dunk contest with five epics dunks.

His first quarter 10 points helped set the tone for the Clippers, who lead 64-53 at the half over the Pistons, with Blake Griffin also playing his part with 21 points. 

On the most impressive dunk of the game so far, Jordan came up with an epic reverse alley-oop. 

In the build-up, on defensive, Griffin did well save the ball from going out of bounds. Then some neat hands from the Clippers offered up the opportunity for Jordan to make the dunk, and he did in spectacular fashion. 

The NBA is in the process of sending out NBA All-Star dunk invites in a bid to make this years contest an exciting occasion. The competition has been a let down in the past, but with Jordan in this mood, it would surely be off the chart entertainment with him involved.
