Blake Griffin may be an all-star athlete, but an antique clock isn’t the same thing as a basketball.

The Clippers player joined Fist Fight star Ice Cube and Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show to shoot baskets using random objects. Instead of a ball, the trio used three mini balls glued together, cheesecake, an antique clock from Fallon’s grandmother, and a vase full of flowers.

With the cheesecake, it was nothing but net for Griffin. With everything else, he was out-swished.

“When grandpa passed this would be the only thing she would talk to — the ticking of the clock,” Fallon joked about the clock before smashing it against the backboard. “And so I just borrowed ’em from her house. She has three of them: one in the foyer, there’s one in the bedroom, of course there’s one in the sunroom. That’s where she spends most of her hours dreaming, missing grandpa.”
