The moment of the season has already occurred for the Clippers - but which moment it is, exactly, is unclear.

Is it Blake Griffin’s rocketing, ballistic November 20th dunk over (and on) the New York Knicks Timofey Mozgov, the cover page to his diverse and expanding portfolio of highlight plays?

Or is it Griffin’s blocked dunk attempt, late in the fourth quarter against the hapless Cavaliers last Friday thanks to J.J. Hickson, that preceded an embarrassing end to the Cavs’ record-setting 26-game losing streak?

It’s been a thrill ride with Griffin and Co. so far, but the Clippers themselves are a middling 20-35, residing just a few steps up from the basement of the Western Conference.
