If the Golden State Warriors are going to allow this to happen, they may as well pack up and head back home. In the middle of the third quarter Chris Paul and Blake Griffin completed three straight lobs that got the Staples Center on their feet.
Number 1: Just a typical CP3 to Blake alley-oop. For every lob Blake catches the quicker the notion “Lob City is dead” fades into the abyss.
