Chris Paul’s son imitates Blake Griffin’s game face [Video]
After the Clippers beat the Memphis Grizzlies, 87-86, in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series, Chris Paul’s son sat in his father’s lap as the All-Star point guard was interviewed by reporters.
Paul was asked about a fourth-quarter sequence in which he dished the ball to Blake Griffin, who made a huge slam dunk with less than two minutes remaining to put the Clippers up by four, 84-80.
“I just know I got into the lane,” Paul said. “I saw the two guys looking at me and I saw Blake [Griffin].”
Paul then turned to his adorable 2-year-old son and implored him to imitate Griffin’s facial expression when the Clippers’ power forward wants the ball in the lane, a look that signals an imminent jam.
“Make the Blake face,” Paul said to his son, Chris.
Paul’s son then proceeds to lower his head, turn toward the reporters, and give them a full-hearted glare.
It’s beyond funny and eerily accurate. Check it out in the video above.
The Clippers, who have a 2-1 lead over Memphis, play in Game 4 at Staples Center on Monday evening. Win or lose, hopefully little Chris will be featured in the team’s next interview.
