Blake gets a dose of the old school

by Zettler Clay

As much as the NBA showcases larger-than-life athletic monsters on a given night, the line of demarcation between the showy and substance rests in the strategy.

Rick Mahorn demonstrated such a while ago.

Fast forward to Sunday night, when the Clippers visited the Nuggets in a matchup of two of the most exciting — if not up-and-coming — franchises in the league. Blake Griffin’s renowned power game has been duly noted by Al Harrington, who makes the proper adjustment.

Ouch. Insert another bullet point to the “defending Blake Griffin” scouting manual.
