Lob City was in full effect Saturday when Jamal Crawford brought out his LA Clipper teammate Blake Griffin to his Seattle Pro Am which resulted in a highlight heavy dribbling and dunk exhibition that had the crowd reminiscing about the days of watching Payton and Kemp connect on lobs.
“I didn’t know much about Seattle until I got to the league, but everybody that came here and played the Sonics told me nothing but good things,” said Griffin. “I definitely wanted to check it out, and it met all of my expectations.”
Jamal Crawford was once again unstoppable, scoring 51 points, with his shake and bake moves and deep 3 pointers. Blake put up 49 (2 more than his NBA career high) and his team won 136-122. The most unpopular player of the night was Aziz N’Diaye who tried to prevent Lob City from happening by delivering three consecutive fouls to Blake Griffin.
“It got physical out there, but that’s how Blake likes it,” Crawford said.
As much as we love seeing NBA players and great highlights back in Seattle, we can’t wait for the upcoming season to see more of these two connecting on lobs for the Clippers.
