Blake Griffin is frequently given jump shots by opposing defenses as they attempt to prevent him from attacking the basket.

Griffin is being encouraged by his teammates and coaches to take open jumpers.

"If I miss a couple in practice, they say, 'Keep shooting it. We see you every day before practice working with [Clippers shooting coach] Bob Thate,' " Griffin said about his teammates. "That gives me confidence. Now I know that if I miss a couple, I can get it going. It's just a matter of doing it."
