With less than a minute left in the 4th quarter of a very close game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors, Blake Griffin hit a clutch circus shot, and then did what people on Twitter are dubbing as a "back flip," but it appears to me more of a backwards somersault. Either way, it was pretty sweet, and he got fouled on the play (he ended up missing the free throw though).
The Clippers advanced to the Western Conference semifinals after defeating the Warriors in game 7 Saturday night by the score of 126-121. They will travel to Oklahoma City of Monday to take on the Thunder in game 1 of the 2nd round.
Here is a cool gif of the play, from Ben Golliver:
