Griffin registered 26 points (10-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 10 rebounds, nine assists, and two steals across 40 minutes during Wednesday's 133-124 win over the Wizards. Griffin notched his 18th double-double of the season and came close to delivering his second triple-double of 2016-17. He has scored 20 points or more in only six of 16 games during the month of March, but Griffin is still contributing solid rebounding and assist numbers. Expect him to put together another impressive stat line against an abysmal Suns defense on Thursday.
Griffin produced 21 points (9-23 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 39 minutes during Thursday's 97-95 loss to the Mavericks. Despite leading the starters in scoring, Griffin didn't have a particularly good game. He shot inefficiently, had a light rebounding effort, and rarely set up his teammates to score. In the month of March, he's averaging 18.0 points on 46.5 percent shooting, 7.2 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game. While those are certainly solid numbers, it's not what we've come to expect from Griffin throughout his career. He and the Clippers will try to figure it out as they inch closer and closer to the playoffs.
Griffin scored 12 points (2-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT) to go along with eight assists and three rebounds over 26 minutes in Tuesday's 133-109 win over the Lakers. With the Clippers winning 70-40 at the half, the starting five spent significant time on the bench in the second half, and were it not for Griffin's shots at the charity stripe, his output would be virtually nonexistent. With a team like the Clippers, blowouts can sometimes be anticipated, but it's difficult to gauge who will end up with less production. In this game, Chris Paul put up great numbers, but Griffin was not as lucky. Owners expecting a big night were certainly disappointed, but it shouldn't be enough to doubt his ability to post big numbers in all formats.
Griffin posted 30 points (12-19 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-7 FT) with six rebounds, two assists, a blocked shots and a steal across 31 minutes in Monday's 114-105 win against the Knicks. The three triples tied a season high, as he also went deep three times in his 43-point effort Feb. 26 against the Hornets. After his poor game in Utah on March 13 the forward has bounced back with 23.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists over the past three outings.
Griffin will rejoin the starting five Saturday against the Cavaliers. As expected, Griffin will resume his usual role in the starting five upon his return to the team after resting for Thursday's tilt against the Nuggets. He's averaging 19.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 5.5 assists across 36.1 minutes per game since the All-Star break.
