This play reminds me of a lot of streetball games I’ve seen. A guy crosses a defender with exaggerated results and then pulls up for a shot, which is a miss. But for the streetballer, the editor of the mixtape would cut before the shot is taken. Unfortunately for Eric Bledsoe, the game was live on ESPN so we all got to see the results of the shot after Jared Cunningham ran off the court. Taj Gibson even posted the video on Instagram with the caption “point guards got it rough.”
But Bledsoe didn’t miss much against the Clippers. He finished with 27 points, which included 3-of-4 from downtown and 12-of-14 from the free throw line. Unfortunately for the Suns, it wasn’t enough to stop the Chris Paul and Blake Griffin show as they combined for 70 points and came away with a three-point win.
