No matter the setting or opponent, the odds on Blake Griffin putting on a show is extremely high.
This time the show is in Phoenix and the move of choice? The ‘patented’ hand-behind-the-head Karl Malone dunk on a face break against the Suns.
Shockingly, Griffin’s dunk wasn’t the most exciting thing about the quarter. It’s no secret the Griffin has been on a tear lately, pointing back to the moment Chris Paul went down with a shoulder injury, but in the first quarter Griffin put together the best quarter of this NBA career scoring 22 points on 8-of-9 shooting, the only miss a block by Miles Plumlee.

For those wondering, Griffin’s career high in points is 47 points, a feat that occurred in 2011 against the Indiana Pacers. Considering how close the Suns stay and how aggressive Griffin remains, he could come close to topping that feat.
