WATCH: Blake Griffin shows off his handles
Blake Griffin is typically known as a high-flying, ESPN Top 10 dunker of the night type talent. We often forget the actual depth of his game.
Watch as Griffin shows of some sick handles during the Los Angeles Clippers matchup against the New Orleand Pelicans on Saturday night at Staples Center.
This fancy display came with about 7:40 to go in the 3rd quarter, and the end result is a nailed-down three-pointer for Matt Barnes in the corner, to push the Clippers’ lead to 64-44. Blake sizes up, dribbles, spins, and throws a perfect behind-the-back pass to Barnes in the corner, although Barnes opts to pass to Chris Paul, instead of shooting, but Paul passes back to Barnes, who then hits the deep ball. This was a pretty display of passing from one of the NBA’s most exciting teams.
Blake Griffin finished the night with 20 points and 5 rebounds, and the Clippers moved to 41-20 on the season.
