How we know NBA games are back: Chris Paul to DeAndre Jordan alley-oop (VIDEO)


If you want to know how the Clippers just keep on winning during without Blake Griffin, it’s all right here.

They run a little more spread pick-and-roll with Griffin gone, using Chris Paul‘s decision-making skills to carve up defenses — Thursday night against San Antonio he finished with 28 points and 12 assists. They run that pick-and-roll with DeAndre Jordan, who rolls hard and finishes well — he stays in his offensive lane and in that lane there may be nobody better. Put some shooting around that and it all works.

Danny Green read this play, got in position, and there was nothing he was going to be able to do to stop it.

The Clippers won handily 105-86. It was a quality win for the Clippers, but the Spurs were without Kawhi Leonard, and they clearly missed him.
