The Clippers needed their stars to step up in Game 7 to get past the Warriors. They did and the Clippers won 126-121. Part of that was Blake Griffin, who shook off early struggles and was lethal down the stretch. He scored on Draymond Green in the post, then completely brushed by him on this one to get the crazy and-one.
Green played Griffin tough the entire series, but overall, Griffin got the best of him. And Griffin's ascension to true superstar is a huge reason the Clippers are headed to the second round.
