Blake Griffin is Making Alley-Oops Look Effortless

Blake Griffin couldn’t use his super powers to propel the Clippers over the Blazers last night. The Blazers clogged the lane and seemed to confuse Griffin, limiting him to 6-of-17 shooting, and forcing him into five turnovers (tying a season high). The Blake Show finished with 20 points and 18 rebounds.

Based on internet reaction, I’m guessing Griffin is currently being talked-about more on the web than the Heat, people already crave Griffin highlights more than any other player in the league (Durant, Kobe, etc), and that’s pretty incredible for a rookie who is 21 years old and played in just 42 games. Nevertheless, Donald Sterling will find a way to fuck this up, and this summer we’ll all be cooking up dream-team like scenarios with Griffin as the linchpin, surrounded by Steph Curry at point guard and small forward to be named later.
