Blake Griffin does impressions now.
And his one of Austin Rivers is both hysterical and pretty accurate. The pounding of the ball out top, waiving off guys who want to help so he can get an isolation, the herky-jerky motion, and the ill-advised shot.
While Rivers put up 21 points in extended minutes of a blowout against the Knicks, don’t confuse that with him fitting in with the Clips as a backup one behind Chris Paul. He plays 15-18 minutes a night, but in the five games before the bye against the Knicks he was 6-of-24 shooting, plus he had four assists and four turnovers.
Still, that’s pretty cold blooded of Griffin to do that right in front of Rivers.
