Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer is becoming somewhat of a cult hero, and his passion for his team was on show again on Tuesday night.

Ballmer is a very passionate part of the Staples Center crowd and has previously been spotted getting very excited as his team put on a show.
With point guard Chris Paul leading the orchestra, DeAndre Jordan has been responsible for some of the best highlight dunks of the past two years, and he produced another stunning effort on Tuesday against the San Antonio Spurs.
While the visitors went on to claim the win in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead in the first-round playoff series, Ballmer still had time to enjoy this from his Clippers center which left him in a state of disbelief.
The Clippers have established themselves the nickname of ‘Lob City’ for LA given their tendency and ability to produce these plays with Blake Griffin also a willing recipient, but it was Jordan who left Ballmer clutching his head and wondering whether or not what he just witnessed was real.
If the Spurs win on Thursday night and wrap this series up, this will unfortunately be the last we see of Ballmer this season. However, he is undoubtedly a fans favourite already and will continue to support the team.
