Kendrick Perkins on Blake Griffin's Dunk: "It Happens"

It was the dunk heard around the world when Blake Griffin put one over Oklahoma Thunder's Kendrick Perkins during last night's game.

You would think that Perkins would be a little sore or heartbroken following the game, but it seems he has a healthy outlook on the situation.

"It happens. A the end of the day if you're a shot blocker, you're going to get dunked on. It was a great play that he made. Obviously I wish I wasn't in it, but it was a great play that he made."

It all happened in such a split second that neither Griffin or Kendrick could recount how exactly everything went down.

"It's the timing of the play, it's the timing of when I got the pass, and also the late rotation," Griffin said. "If all that comes together at the right time, then those thins happen. It's not like I caught the ball and thought 'okay, let's go make something happen.' It just came together."

Griffin knew it was huge when D'Andre Jordan came in with the congratulatory bear hug.

"(D'Andre Jordan's) reaction is always my gauge on what the dunk was like. I think that time he screamed, grabbed me and bear hugged me. I figured he thought it was cool."

What did you think of Griffin's dunk?
