There were more misses than makes, the best dunks were made in the first couple rounds, and there really weren't any dunks that really had you dropping your jaw in astonishment.

Last night against the Bucks, Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin teamed up for a pretty outstanding alley oop that probably could have been a top contender in any of the past few dunk contests.

Crawford went between the legs, passing it to Griffin, who caught and slammed home a windmill dunk.

As much as I appreciate James White's failed attempts to wow everyone with a true free throw dunk and Terrence Ross'  tribute to Vinsanity, there were a lot of duds that night. And when Griffin himself won the 2012 Dun Contest with a dunk over the hood of a Kia, that was just embarrassing.

This dunk could have beaten damn near anything in the finals of those contests, hands down.
