Report: Blake Griffin agrees with Chris Paul on the Clippers

Richard Rowe-US PRESSWIRE

Per Ramona Shelburne, Blake Griffin agrees with Chris Paul that the Clippers will go where Blake takes them.

Per Ramona's article on ESPN Los Angeles:

[Paul] has a huge role on this team," Griffin said Thursday in an interview with ESPNLosAngeles.com. "He's been the guy who has closed out a lot of games late for us.

But in my mind, this is the year I need to step into that role and really help him shoulder that load. I'll be right there with him at the end of games, being the guy that he can always count on.

Blake tells Ramona that he has been working on improving his game.

To be honest, I'm more excited about this upcoming season than I've ever been," Griffin said. "My workouts with [shooting coach] Bob Thate and our coaches have been geared around figuring out how I'm going to be used this season.

I'm doing a lot of stuff at the elbow, a lot of shooting. One of the things [new coach Doc Rivers] said to me was, 'I don't want you to be afraid to go 0-for-15.' In other words, just have the mindset of a shooter. And with the work I've done this summer, I'm starting to get that confidence and think like a shooter.

We've been working on a lot of face-up stuff in the post," he said. "I'm definitely going to be used differently this year.

"This summer has been so great for me. I've had a completely healthy, full summer to be able to work with our coaching staff, once I got over the ankle thing. This summer has been huge for me, and it's one of the reasons I'm so excited about next year."
