Monday night belonged to the block shot artists â€” but who did it best?
Think of last night’s slate of games like a buffet line of blocked shots. You had your two-hand Bismack Biyombo variety to save the win against New Orleans to start things off. Move down the line a little later and Washington’s Chris Singleton came with the one-handed “long arm of the law” kind on Manu Ginobili at the rim, the kind where you see the ball freeze in mid-air. Check it out at play No. 7 below.
Lastly, the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan finished the night with just a kidnapping of a block in L.A., grabbing a floater by Boston’s Rajon Rondo right out of the air like it was the ball Jordan brought to the game from home. Jordan absolutely gloves this shot.
Now, I love buffets, but no matter how often you hit one up, you’re always left with the same question: What do I pick? Which block is the best?
What player would you least want to drive on?
