Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin showed off some surprising ball handling skills in the open court during Saturday’s game against the Denver Nuggets.
Griffin is best known for his dunking abilities, but who knew he had ridiculous handle? Watch how Griffin dribbles the ball from coast to coast while putting on some nifty moves along the way. It’s unfortunate that the official called a foul on Ty Lawson that stopped the fast-break sending Griffin to the foul line.
Griffin scored 24 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Clippers to a 112-91 win over the Nuggets at Staples Center.
Matt Barnes returned to the Clippers lineup for the first time since Nov. 18. He missed 16 games while recovering from surgery on his left eye to repair a torn retina.
“Our energy level to start the game was great. It is good to have Matt back. Matt brings energy and has a positive impact even if he doesn’t score which is good for us,” Griffin told reporters in a post-game interview.
