Watch: Blake Griffin Pays Homage To Karl Malone With ‘Mailman’ Dunk

(CBS) Blake Griffin’s been on fire recently, earning Western Conference player of the month honors in February after averaging 30.0 points, and he continued the tear in a 112-105 win against the Suns on Monday night, scoring 37 points.

The highlight of his scoring outburst was a second-quarter “Mailman” dunk, in which he Griffin held his left hand behind his head during a thunderous jam — just as Karl Malone had originally done many years before.
