It has certainly been an incredible week for both Los Angeles ball clubs, with back to back overtime victories and history making. One of them is the larger than life, Clippers rookie Blake Griffin. Griffin recorded his first triple double of his career, tallying 33 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists in the 127-119 victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
Wizards center JaVelle Mcgee definitely flexed his muscles by demonstrating he deserves a consideration for rookie of the year nod who finished with 22 points and 13 boards. But of course who can top a man that jumps over a Kia?
Alongside Griffin was the powerful force of center Chris Kaman who grabbed 12 rebounds and added 28 points to contribute to the Clipper’s victory.
Not to mention Clippers guard Eric Gordon, wrist injury and all, who managed to split defenders, cross over his opponents and lead Los Angeles in scoring with 33 points.
Don’t let the 28-44 record fool you, these Clippers are going to play fearlessly against any opponent!
With less than a month left in the regular season, the Clippers continue to fill the seats in anticipation of another spectacular dunk from Griffin and upset of a playoff contending opponent.
The Clippers next opponent who happen to be the defending champs, their Staples Center room mates, the Lakers.
They face off on Friday at 7:30 pm (PST).
