Blake Griffin is hoping to add a three-point shot to his game this season.
Griffin has taken only 87 3-point shots in his last 182 games, hitting 32.2 percent of them.
Griffin said he shot more 3’s than he’s ever shot before during the offseason, nearly mirroring his work from the long mid-range.
If Griffin is able to shoot a respectable three-point shot, he would help the Clippers solve their spacing issues.
“I want to be someone who shoots from there confidently, for sure,” Griffin said. “A lot of us power forwards, our strength is inside or our versatility. You look at the best power forwards, Anthony Davis, LaMarcus (Aldridge), Draymond (Green) ... they can all shoot but they can all put the ball on the floor and they can all score inside. I don’t necessarily think falling in love with the 3-point shot is a good idea, but shooting it confidently from there is great.”
Green made 100 three-pointers last season, which helped the Warriors go small.
“The further out I can stretch, the more I can help open up the floor,” Griffin said.
