Amare: Recent Blake dunk let Moz off hook

Amare Stoudemire saw Blake Griffin's ridiculous dunk over Kendrick Perkins in the Clippers-Oklahoma City game on Monday night. He immediately thought of ex-teammate Timofey Mozgov, who was similarly posterized by Griffin in a game last season.

"I said Mozgov can now sleep. He can get some rest now," Stoudemire said with a laugh.

He added that Griffin's dunk over Perkins was better than the one he put down on Mozgov.

Mike D'Antoni hadn't seen the dunk but heard his players talking about it on Tuesday.

"They said it was better, I don't know," the coach said. "I can't wait to see it .... The Mozgov one was pretty impressive."
