[HIGHLIGHTS] Blake Griffin Out-Duels Lamarcus Aldridge


Considering all that has happened in 2014, the only thing capable of stopping Blake Griffin from being a destroyer of worlds is the All-Star break.

But before heading to New Orleans, the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trial Blazers decided to put on a show for fans, led by two of the best power forwards in the NBA in Blake Griffin and Lamarcus Aldridge.

In a winning effort, Blake Griffin scored 36 points while grabbing 10 rebounds. This was Blake’s ninth 30-point, 10-assist game of the season, third in the NBA behind Kevin Love (13) and Kevin Durant (10). While Griffin’s 36 points stand out, how he got them is more impressive. Known as a below-avearge free-throw shooter throughout his career, Griffin knocked down 10 of his 12 free throws. For Aldridge, he pitched in 25 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists.

When it came down to it in the fourth quarter, both players contributed 8 points, but the collective help of those around Griffin was the driving force in the Clippers walking away with a victory.

But footage of the game can better show you how these two played better than I can, so enjoy.
