09:47 PM ET 10.11 | The biggest questions in the Los Angeles Clippers camp this season are: is Lamar Odom an asset or a liability, can Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups stay healthy, and can Blake Griffin become a better offensive player? In today's early morning 94-80 loss to the Miami Heat in China, Griffin displayed a larger array of low-post moves than he did last season. The days of only scoring on alley-oops or rebound put-backs seem to be over. Don't get me wrong, an airborne play or a tip-in will always be options, but now Griffin has a spin move, wants to back down opponents in the paint and learned the old-fashioned up-and-under move that he showcased on the Heat's Robert Dozier. Griffin not only used his new arsenal on young, inexperienced players, but on Chris Bosh and Shane Battier as well.

LOL not really stellar low post defensive players :-). Shane is more of a perimeter defender. And bosh is.....well an Ostrich.
