Poor Tony Allen. Here he is, just trying to do his job protecting the basket, and he has to deal with a seven-foot guy that jumps higher than him bearing down with the ball hanging in midair. He just didn't stand a chance against DeAndre Jordan.
All Chris Paul had to do was throw the ball up, and you knew Jordan was going to catch it. Jordan's no Blake Griffin, but he's a pretty awesome dunker himself, having finished third in total jams this season. In many ways, he's even more fearsome because he has the body of a guy who shouldn't jump that high. Except ... he does, and it's scary.
