On the Court
When Blake Griffin is on the court he has to be accounted and game planned for. That’s been the case since he has come into the league. As he’s matured in his career, there have been fewer lobs and more shots from an extended range. While he is a career 29.9% from 3-point range, in the 16-17 season he shot over 33.6%, and as he gets more and more comfortable taking those shots his percentages will rise.
Griffin can take bad shots and make them; his thing has been he’s more willing to make the right basketball play instead of getting caught in those late clock shots. That is what you want in a decision maker. He is aware and if by chance he ends up with the ball he can take that shot and hit it. Griffin has never been a large volume 3-point shooter so while his attempts rise his percentages will career average with stabilize.
Capable of running the offense, Griffin does have a nice handle on the ball but can still get in some trouble. So, having Milos Teodosic, Doc Rivers will be able to get a new looks on offense with an emphasize on more ball movement. Griffin understands that task will fall squarely on his shoulders and not being shared the same way as it was during his time with Chris Paul. He will have to become the LA Clippers’ floor general.
