GIF: Blake Griffin Palms Loose Ball To Start Break, Finishes Lob Left-Handed

Blake Griffin

We’ve always maintained that more frightening than Blake Griffin’s otherworldly explosiveness is his unmatched blend of strength, coordination, and dexterity. No big man in the league has better balance than Blake, a trait that’s become more apparent as he’s expanded his offensive game to include a handle that belies his size.

Fortunately, this incredible sequence from last night’s Los Angeles Clippers-Denver Nuggets exhibition in Las Vegas ensures we don’t have to, and shows off the total package of Griffin’s surreal athleticism.

It wasn’t just Derrick Rose who showed off the handles in preseason action last night. Chris Paul shook Trey Burke by faking towards DeAndre Jordan‘s high screen, only to cross over to his right. Once in the lane, Paul lobbed it to DJ for the easy slam. If you want to study how to run the high screen and roll, this sequence by CP3 and DJ is a perfect example. Read More »

Blake Griffin

While Clippers power forward Blake Griffin worked on his stroke this offseason, and appears to have added a three-pointer into his bag of offensive tricks, he’s still the same guy who jumped over a Kia.

The Clippers power forward knocked down four straight jumpers to start last night’s preseason game against the Dubs, including a corner three right in the face of a surprised Andrew Bogut. But does this mean he’s now a three-point threat? Read More »

Glen Davis Lost Weight This Offseason, But Doc Rivers Can’t Tell

Glen Davis

The Los Angeles Clippers’ Doc Rivers is a players’ coach. Few coaches in league history have been as respected and beloved by their players as Rivers, a reality owed as much to his gregarious, caring persona as any strategic attribute. That unique standing lends him some casual leeway with his guys that other coaches don’t have, something of which Rivers took amusing advantage to describe the supposed weight loss of Glen “Big Baby” Davis.
