Blake Griffin is not a three-point shooter. In seven full seasons in the NBA, the Clippers forward known for his nasty dunks and not his silky smooth shooting only managed 268 three-point attempts, to the tune of a career 30.9 percent shooting percentage. That’s just 38 attempts per season, by the way.
Blake Griffin don’t care, though.
With the Clippers down by two with just six seconds left, the team inbounded the ball to Patrick Beverly, who hit Griffin on the wing. It looked like the designed play was breaking down, and with the clock quickly ticking down to zero, Griffin launched a buzzer beater that sailed smoothly into the basket.

The win moved the Clippers to 4-0 on the season, as Griffin poured in 25 points on 10-for-16 shooting and 2-for-5 from downtown, adding eight boards and five assists to the cause.
