When Blake Griffin and the name of another NBA player are both trending on Twitter, you can safely guess what happened: The Los Angeles Clippers star made a poster out of his opponent with yet another ferocious dunk.

That was the case late Monday night—and still Tuesday morning—after the human highlight reel threw down over his latest victim: Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kendrick Perkins.

The two have been mentioned close to 90,000 times combined on Twitter in the last 24 hours, according to statistics from social media search engine Topsy, with everyone from Lebron James and Terrell Owens to ESPN and casual fans weighing in on the glory, the shame, and the undisputed dunk of the year.
