The Clippers won again at home, taking down the Warriors 113-109 for a sixth straight win at Staples. And guess who played a really good game for them?
Blake Austin Griffin. (Did you know his middle name was Austin? That means his intials are BAG. Anyway, what was I saying again?)
Griffin nearly did something entirely amazing, flirting with a historic 30-20-10 game, but came up just short. I guess 30 points, 18 rebounds and eight assists is pretty OK though.
And then of course, Griffin did this.
What can you possibly say about the Clipper rookie at this point? Let's list a few things he's done:
1) Revived a fan base that was one of the most depressed in all of sports. 2) Is averaging almost 30 and 15 in January. 3) Has brought back the good Baron Davis. Because of Griffin's inspiring play and hustle, the Clippers have gotten two good players because of Griffin. 4) Has the Clippers talking playoffs. This year. 5) Made the Clippers a must-watch team while also making them nearly as big a deal in Los Angeles as the Lakers. For real.
That list could go on and on. But for now, just admire his work from Saturday against the Warriors. And get ready to see a lot more of it.
