Emotions were high building up to last night's NBA Playoffs action. Tension around tight series mixed with major NBA moves off the court had everyone glued to the TV hours before the games even tipped off. While the Wizards closed out the Bulls in Chicago and Memphis took the lead over OKC, all eyes were on the Clippers.
With the team back in Los Angeles following off-court controversy and Adam Silver's banning of Donald Sterling, the game was a major event. The Clippers showed out on the big night, defeating the Warriors to take a 3-2 series lead. Blake Griffin played well, dropping 18 points in a Black/Infrared Jordan Super.Fly 2 PO. See what else was worn last night in today's Kicks On Court.
Blake Griffin bounced back from his foul-plagued performance in Game 1 to lead the Clippers to a 40-point blowout win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 2. Griffin, who scored 35 points, laced up a new, white and red colorway of the recently released Jordan Super.Fly 2 PO. Griffin has now debuted new colorways of the Super.Fly 2 PO, as he wore a red, white and blue pair in Game 1. No word on when or if these colorways will release, but stay tuned.

Mardi Gras may be over, but tones of purple, green and gold dominated last night's on-court footwear in the NBA. Kevin Durant scored 42 points and Russell Westbrook recorded the second fastest triple double in NBA history while wearing Mardi Gras renditions of the Nike KD VI and the Air Jordan XX8 SE, respectively. Stephen Curry and Kent Bazemore laced up Under Armour Anatomix Spawn Mari Gras PEs, while the Jordan Brand combination of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin sported Mardi Gras-inspired Jordan CP3.VIIs and Jordan Super.Fly 2s, respectively.

Clippers forward Blake Griffin obviously has a ton of Jordan Super.Fly 2 PEs. This season alone, we've spotted him in at least five different makeups of the Super.Fly 2 ranging from his Halloween PE to red, white and blue. In his Oklahoma City homecoming last night, Griffin laced up an all-red PE version of the Super.Fly 2. If you recall, he debuted a similarly-colored version against the Thunder earlier this year that featured a mainly red base and a blue bottom, but this particular PE is completely dressed in red. What are your thoughts on the Super.Fly 2's performance? View these kicks on court, plus Wilson Chandler's 11s and Ty Lawson's new iDs, below.
