Blake Griffin wins POTW
Blake Griffin came back from his surgery in the nick of time. It took him a few games to get back in gear but once he did he has shown once again that when completely healthy he’s one of the ten best players in the NBA.
Griffin won his sixth career Player of the Week award by helping the Clippers to a 2-1 week behind averages of 26.0 points, 10.3 rebounds and 9.3 assists in 35.7 minutes. He posted his fifth career triple-double on Feb. 6 at Toronto and scored a team season-high 32 points in New York on Feb. 8. Griffin shot 49.2 percent from the field for the week, including 4-of-8 from three-point range, and totaled 24 assists and only three turnovers.
The problem for Clipper fans is that he’s rarely completely healthy and never seems to be completely healthy at the same that Chris Paul is completely healthy. As we wait for Chris Paul to heal we can only hope that this year is different and that the Clippers can enter the playoffs with Blake/Paul/Jordan playing together so we can really get a feel for how this team can do with the big three. Might be the last time we get to find out.
