Video: Eric Gordon's Vicious Game-Tying Dunk Vs. Utah
Clippers guard Eric Gordon erased a two-point, late-game deficit in style on Saturday, taking the ball into the heart of Utah's defense and throwing down a monster dunk over forward Paul Millsap. (See video below.)
The dunk came with six seconds left in the game to force overtime (and, later, double overtime), making it even more spectacular. Between this throwdown and his posterization of Tim Duncan last week, it's clear EG is more than just your typical outside shooter. He's a force to be reckoned with. Liam Neeson with a basketball.
Utah ended up winning the game to drop the Clips to 1-6 on the season, but Clippers fans have to be impressed with the progression of their third-year guard. Through seven games, Gordon is averaging 21.1 points and 4.7 assists per game (including 27 points on Saturday).
He sprained his right shoulder against the Jazz and left the game in the closing moments of double overtime. He is considered "day-to-day" after undergoing an MRI.
