The knock on Blake Griffin among some of his critics is that all he can do is dunk.   No jumper, no handles, no touch. Against Sacramento, Blake showed a nice touch with this and one amazing shot that also owes a little to luck.  What makes it a smart play is that when he was fouled he still threw the ball up because you never know if it might go in.

Not to disappoint the Blake fans that just want to see him dunks and the critics that believe that’s all he does, here’s a sick alley oop from the same game.

As a bonus to a bonus video, check out DeMarcus Cousin’s cheapshot on Blake in the same game.
