Default Re: Blake Griffin

Question to anyone who saw the game live (not on highlights):

Did he look explosive and quick? If so, was he winded? I'm assuming it's going to take some time to get back to the naturally-gifted, physical beast he was when he drove out of Norman.

With that said, numbers like that (even in the preseason) would be hard to come by if he isn't that same explosive player, unless he's really upped the offensive skills ante. Probably the most telling stat of all was his offensive rebounding. He had 5 in 23 minutes last night.

On a side note, the other big-name rook - Aminu - put up good numbers as well. I wonder if there is better rookie tandem in the league than those two (remember, technically Blake's a rookie this season). I'm just sayin'

Hmmmm, probably not a better rookie tandem in the league. I can't think of one.

Default Blake with 23, 9 vs Warriors

If he could hit free throws he could be looking at 20 points.
Stat line
15 points (6-9 FG, 3-10 line), 8 rebounds, 4 assists 2 turnovers in 15 minutes

Also has a good slam that can be seen here

Clippers get rocked, Blake doesnt play any in the 4th.
Blake Griffin - 23 pts, 9 rbs, 4 assists in 24 minutes. 3-10 free throw shooting.

Blake has two dunks on the highlight page right now on NBA.com

I think the best thing for Blake is for the Clips to struggle again, get rid of Bdiddy, and build around Blake, Gordon, and Aminu.

Yep, they need to get rid of Baron Davis.

I didn't recall Blake being brick city from the line at OU so I went back to check his stats ... 59%. Did his poor free throw shooting cost us?

I seem to remember him hitting the ones that counted the most down the stretch...

but i am shocked at 30%, no way he should be under 50%...i would say his ceiling would be around 65% when he gets comfortable...

I see that Blake's shooting some "Take that!" glares at opponents after his slams. Not sure what I think about that (not that he cares what I think, of course). I don't watch the NBA enough to have a good grasp on the current culture of that league, so maybe this is just how it's done, but I'll admit that I prefer the more modest, quiet-assassin approach.

That's how he played when he was a Sooner. Don't know if there's any reason to expect his style to change now that he's in the NBA.

You're right, though this seems more overt to me.

Maybe it's just that I haven't seen him play in a while.

I thought he did it more as a freshman than as a sophomore. Perhaps he'll do it a little bit less as be becomes more sure of himself in the NBA.

yeah, he did that look when here too.

it's a game thing though because as soon as he steps off the court he's just as personable and humble as you could wish.

it really is just his game face.

Baron Davis and Chris Kaman were both DNP's so the score doesn't mean a whole lot, imo.

he was taught a few lessons about san antonio's 3-pt. offense there in the final minutes. he'll learn to recognize their shooters playing the arc.

I hope he also learned to avoid one of the dirtiest players in the NBA - Tim Duncan. On the fall he took after blocking a Duncan shot with his forearm/elbow, Duncan clearly used his arm to, at minimum, initiate the flip; and then he took a swipe at him as he started elevating for a lob that almost led to another fall. Watch out for TD in the future Blake! I hope you gleaned that from the game as well.

It is preseason. That is the perfect time to commit a TO. I suspect he is testing the water a bit. I would not worry about him turning the ball over too much until it happens in games that count.
