O.J. Mayo hip-check leads to breakaway slam
Chris Paul made a mistake last night.
He got in O.J. Mayo's way.
During the Grizzlies' 94-85 win over the Clippers Monday night, Mayo picked Paul's pocket on his way to the breakaway jam.
After the steal, though, Mayo issued a subtle hip-check, knocking Paul on his rear end. No foul was called.
Mayo's jam came in at No. 5 in the NBA top 10; I, as well as the voice of the top 10, think it was shafted.
Russell Westbrook hit another buzzer beater, coming in at No. 8, while Paul Millsap, Thabo Sefolosha, J.J. Hickson, Louis Amundson, Kenneth Faried and Jan Vesely all made it with dunks.
