One question all of us are wondering-- how are we going to stop the beast that is known as Blake Griffin? I dont have an answer but I have an interesting article that discusses this...
From ESPN Insider--
" The Orange's 2-3 zone has battered shooters in the tourney, holding every opponent since UConn under 70 ppg, after giving up a 71.5 average for the season.
But if they expect it to work against Oklahoma in the Sweet 16, they're kidding themselves. Zones are red meat for Blake Griffin -- he's got 26 double-doubles this season, and against Michigan (the only other pure zone team the Sooners faced this season), Griffin took advantage on the glass, pulling down 17 boards. The 1-3-1 and 2-3 that the Wolverines threw at Griffin did nothing to stop his offensive efficiency, either. He still dropped 33 points on 14-for-20 shooting."
I feel the only way for us to contain him is by using Onuaku and Big Rick to pester him all night long. Body for body we should be able to stick with him im just worried about his athletic ability.
