DeAndre Jordan's monstrous dunk for the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday may go down as the year's most memorable throw-down. The 6-foot-11, 265-pound Jordan showed his other worldly athleticism, and 6-3, 189-pound Detroit guard Brandon Knight was left flat on his back after getting posterized on the play, to put it mildly.

"It wasn't in the scouting reports that the clippers threw lobs lol" was Knight's good-natured response afterward on Twitter. But Wizards point guard John Wall had more stern advice.

"That's why you don't help side sometimes," Wall said. "Not against that team."

Knight played the victim during All-Star weekend as well when he fell down on a crossover dribble by Cleveland's Kyrie Irving. But the Wizards shouldn't laugh; Knight had a career-high 32 points during a win in Washington two weeks ago.

"If he was a big man, then I think it would've been a little bit more embarrassing," Wizards center Emeka Okafor said. "You remove Knight from that dunk, and it's still an amazing dunk, so the fact that he just got caught, it's the game. Everybody has been dunked on."
