Kris Humphries stuffs Blake Griffin and Nets beat Clippers

New Jersey Nets fans who came out to see Blake Griffin put on a highlight reel got to see their own Kris Humphries stuff the mad dunker and the Nets squeeze out a 101-100 win over the Los Angeles Clippers at the Prudential Center tonight.

Griffin put on another clinic but the Clippers 6-foot-10 power forward was met one time under the basket by the 6-foot-9 Humphries who swatted the ball from way above Griffin's head into the stands.

On the following play, Griffin knocked the Nets power forward on his hump as payback and no call.


It still had to feel good to Humphries who had been manhandled by Griffin the last time they met.   A Kardashian family reunion would have been more welcome sight than the Clippers power forward after that game.

The Nets led by as much as 16 points in the last two minutes of the third period before Griffin continued having his way with the Nets like the last time the Clippers won, 101-91,  on Jan. 16 at the Staples Center.

Sloppy play by the Nets led to an 8-0 run by Los Angeles to tie the game at 88 with 4:19 left in the game.

The Nets challenged Griffin the whole game and there was a scary moment— with less than three minutes left— when Humphries rolled over Griffin's left ankle while they both went for a loose ball.  The Clippers star didn't get up for a minute before re-entering the game— limping.

Things got very chippy on the court after that foul by Humphries.

Two late fouls by the Nets gave the Clippers a 100-98 lead with 4.2 seconds left before Deron Williams took the inbounds and passed it to Jordan Farmar who hit a 3-point shot for the victory with :00.2 on the clock.

It snaps a seven game home losing streak at home for the Nets.

Highlight totals: Griffin-6 Humphries-1 plus the win.
