Early in the first quarter of the USA Basketball Showcase, Blake Griffin missed an uncontested 1 hand dunk!
He didn’t miss much after that as he made 7 of his other 11 attempts. A couple of those other makes were vicious dunks including an off the backboard oop from Michael Carter-Williams in the 3rd. Of the 4 misses, 3 of them came from behind the 3 point line as Blake tried to show he could make them – he did make 1. He also finished with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists in 22 minutes.
But the best Blake moment wasn’t his missed dunk in front of Kenneth Farired or his move & dunk over Faried but when he told Faried he’s a “snitch” and wearing a mic “so don’t say anything reckless.”
