The Atlanta Hawks are getting the best of the Los Angeles Clippers so far, they were leading by 11 points at the half. As the half was winding down, Clippers forward Blake Griffin got the ball in the paint and tried to go up for a dunk or lay up.
Hawks’ Elton Brand had different ideas and came over his head and blocked the shot.
“I’m proud of our guys. (Monday) was a very good effort,” coach Mike Budenholzer said after a disappointing loss to the Washington Wizards. “If we play that long and that hard in games, we’re going to be OK. It’s good for our guys to compete the way they competed.”
So far he is getting the kind of effort he needs to win, except for a missed dunk by Mike Scott.
