I was fortunate enough to go to the Hawks/Clippers game on Friday. I had amazing seats and have never experienced anything quite like it before. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring a camera so all I had was my phone. The pictures aren’t great, but they are better than nothing.
Blake is something to see in person. I would say every other possession he calls for an alley-oop. He had three thrown his way in this game. Converted two of them. One was thrown so high that a giant couldn’t have pulled it down. I immediately turned to my friend and said that anyone who throws an oop too high for Mr. Griffin shouldn’t be throwing them.
He had a solid game. Ended up with 19 points and 11 boards. The amazing thing was that it seemed like he wasn’t really doing much. That’s a true sign that he’s turned into something special. When a player goes for 19 and 11 and it feels like an off game, they are a superstar. Another indication is when the crown boos him like mad. That’s what happened when Blake was at the free throw line. Fans don’t boo a player unless he’s a superstar.
It was a very enjoyable experience and I’m sad to say that the Clippers only come to town once a year. Griffin is quite a site to see. Maybe next time I’ll remember a camera. Have a great Sunday and enjoy the Super Bowl tonight.
