Los Angeles Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin took off from real deep to dunk in traffic over multiple defenders during the third quarter of a Wednesday night game against the Denver Nuggets. One of those defenders happened to be a familiar face: Timofey Mozgov.

Griffin received a pass at the top of the key from All-Star guard Chris Paul and attacked the middle of the paint, with Mozgov flying by behind him helplessly. He then elevated straight to the rim, launchpad style, and Nuggets big Kenneth Faried got trapped below him after take off. Griffin finished the thunderous dunk with one hand, and the force of the impact caused him to stumble to the ground after he landed.

Here's the video of Blake Griffin taking off in traffic for a dunk against the Denver Nuggets.

Blake Griffin launches from deep for dunk video

This is Griffins second year in the NBA he has lots of raw talent and not only is he strong, but athletically he can compete with the best of them. It is great to watch the Clippers play team basketball and create the circumstances for players to make these great plays!

Blake Griffin launches from deep for dunk video

I don't know how this guy doesn't get hurt.  I mean back in the days if you fly in like that someone would of took you out of the air and you would be done for the season.  Blake is entertaining but I'd be surprised if he doesn't get hurt soon.
