With Los Angeles Clippers forward, Blake Griffin sidelined until at least mid-March, JJ Redick has picked up the scoring load for his team. Ranked first in the NBA in three-point percentage, Redick had a 27 point and three assist outing in the team’s Clippers’ 139-134 loss to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday.
While all of that sounds good, Redick who will compete in the 2016 Foot Locker three-point contest tomorrow night at Air Center in Toronto; his second straight appearance, he needs a break.
“I just want to take a second to relax during All Star Break,” Reddick told CBS Local Sports earlier today in Toronto.
According to Redick, following Saturday evening’s competition that also features defending shooting champion Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, James Harden, Kyle Lowry and others, he plans to enjoy some ‘Netflix and chill.’ No, really!
“I will complete the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer,” said Redick with a grin.
If you’re living under a rock, Making a Murderer is a ten-part documentary directed by Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos and chronicles a Wisconsin man who served an 18 year prison bid for sexual assault and attempted murder and was later exonerated. The docu-series also covers the arrest, prosecution, and conviction of Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, who was also charged in the murder.
“I’m almost done,” said Reddick. Redick also plans to get lots of sleep. “Being away from a 1 ½ year old who awakes at 6:30 AM daily, I’m going to definitely sleep in and hopefully Saturday night after I win the contest on Saturday I’ll have a nice bottle of pinot noir.”
