44 Points on 14-24 shooting, 15 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, 1 block.
Epic beastmode tonight against the man everyone compares him to, Amare Stoudamire. Amare had a good statline too with 39 points on same amount of shooting. So no one can really say either won the matchup.
Clippers still lost but with that amazing performance by Griffin, I give this loss a pass and shall blame it on the nonexistent defense that the Clippers have. Every time it looked like the team was coming up, the Knicks went on another run to bring the lead right back to where it was. Danilo Gallinari was impressive tonight too, scoring 26 points in the 4th quarter alone. I wish the Clippers made a move for him over the summer, he would have been a perfect fit in the small forward position.
But back to the issue at hand, Blake Griffin was a monster tonight and tomorrow, there shall be highlight videos galore!
