(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.
