NBA Playoffs: Klay Thompson Posterizes Big Baby in Warriors' Blowout of Clippers (GIF)

Former Washington State Cougar Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors crushed the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday afternoon, to the tune of 118-97. The victory evened the series at 2-2 as it returns to Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

In the game the Warriors had several huge plays that sparked their momentous first half. Steph Curry hit his first five three-point attempts, Andre Iguodala hit some ridiculously important shots in a huge third quarter, David Lee was big on both ends and Draymond Green made big plays with Jermaine O’Neal on the defensive end all game long.

But nobody put a stamp on the game quite like Klay Thompson did in the second quarter:

The Warriors’ radio crew called it the “dunk of the year”, as Thompson whirly-birded his way into and through Glen “Big Baby” Davis to throw down. There’s no doubt that even in what was a tough game for Klay as an individual plagued with foul trouble, he clearly delivered one of the best dunks of the series and even the NBA Playoffs. In a season full of extremely exciting first round series’, it’s going to be difficult to top this one between GS and L.A.
