It was a bad night for the Detroit Pistons.

Not only did the team's lack of effort get called out by center Greg Monroe, point guard Brandon Knight was left the victim of a monster dunk that may go down as one of the season's best.

DeAndre Jordan, a left-handed player, took an alley-oop pass from Chris Paul and slammed home a dunk with his right hand in the second quarter of a 129-97 win over the Pistons Sunday.

"That was the best dunk of the year and the best I've seen in person," said no less an expert than Blake Griffin, who led seven players in double figures with 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting in 21 minutes after early foul trouble.

The Clippers led by 26 points in the first half, building it with a 28-12 run that included two noteworthy dunks from the 6-foot-11 Jordan. The first one off left Brandon Knight -- who is 8 inches shorter -- flat on his back with a foul.

"Usually I get that dunk and nobody is right there," Jordan said. "This is the first time somebody tried to block it."

Pistons coach Lawrence Frank missed his third straight game because of a family matter. Assistant Brian Hill, who is running the team, said he doesn't expect Frank back for the remainder of the four-game trip.

"This has nothing to do with Coach Hill," Greg Monroe said. "There was no effort from us."
