Well look at this. Just one post after showing Al Jefferson getting smashed on by Jeff Green, I can show the contrast to that thanks to the L.A. Clippers’ Eric Bledsoe. The Clippers won this game 107-100 in Los Angeles, notching their fourth straight victory, and Bledsoe’s hustle here was one reason for the win.
Early in the second quarter with the score tied at 29, Dwyane Wade broke loose after a Clipper turnover, finding himself in a two on one situation with Bledsoe defending. You can see Wade size him up then decide to attack the rim, but Bledsoe was ready and wasn’t backing down. The result? One fine block of a pretty strong dunk attempt.
