Entering the 2012-13 season, there were still concerns about the development of Blake Griffin’s post game and jumper. Nearly halfway through the season, those concerns have diminished.
Griffin has proved that the hard work he put in during the offseason has paid off. Griffin has a career-high true-shooting percentage of 56.7 percent.
Further evidence of his improved jumper is seen when viewing his shooting percentages from different locations on the floor.
He is posting career-high percentages from every range of outside shots at the rim. Most notably 10 to 15 feet, where he is shooting 53.8 percent, because that is typically the area Griffin faces the basket and attacks off the dribble.
His post moves have also developed, and he looks much more comfortable working with his back to the basket. He has also displayed a few counters to the turn over his left shoulder. This has allowed him to pull off up-and-under moves and baseline spins that have turned into more easy baskets near the rim.
